Description

Close-up of a candle monument. The plaque says "A LOS HEROES ANONIMOS DE LA PAZ" which translates as "To the anonymous heroes of the peace". Also below this text is the presidential signature that officially ended the Guatemalan Civil War in 1996. Note that the flame of the candle is not actually burning. This monument is only for viewing from a guided tour of the National Palace of Culture, and for this specific monument I had to ask the tour guide to let me go here, as viewing this monument was not originally part of the tour.
