Famous 5 colones bill!

Allegory to Coffee and Bananas - Aleardo Villa - National Theatre - Costa Rica

The most famous painting of the theater is an allegory to the two most important export products of the country, coffee and bananas. Aleardo Villa ( italian painter ) was not very familiar with our country, so he made a few technical mistakes that made the painting funny and unique. The bananas in the bunch are up side down. The coffee plantations are painted at sea level, what is wrong. The coffee bushes are too small and the women are typical shobby, very elegant nord italian ladies, very different from our coffee pickers. The oxen have the yoke on their necks. Imagine the poor oxen strangled by pulling all that weight. Normally the yoke is tied up to the horns and head. Although he made some mistakes, it is a nice painting and was chosen as a motif for our 5 colones bill. The bill is out of circulation but it can be purchased outside as a collection item.
