HAVANA, Cuba.- An image of the real face of Simon Bolivar was unveiled for the first time in Cuba during a ceremony held Wednesday at the Jose Marti Memorial.
Venezuelan ambassador to Havana Edgardo Ramirez presented the image of the facial reconstruction of the Liberator, as Bolivar is known.
The image was achieved through modern technologies and the application of scientific methods, which provided the information necessary to get the most faithful result. The image was first published last July 24.
The ceremony, which stressed the significant role played by Bolivar in the independence of Latin American nations, took place amidst an international campaign in support of the Bolivarian Revolution led by President Hugo Chavez.
