New mural by Nanook and Gaia in Barracas, Buenos Aires

Argentine cattle were shipped to Buenos Aires by the Spanish in the 18th century

Nanook explained the thinking behind the new design: “This wall is located in the Barrio Barracas, which grew in the early 18th century due to its port. One of the main imports were cattle from Spain. This area grew in the 19th century and was populated mainly by the rich until 1871 when there was a yellow fever epidemic which forced the rich to flee Barracas to the north.”
