Mural of Antonio Gauchito Gil
Antonio Gauchito Gil was Argentinian "Robin Hood" who lived as an outlaw in the 1800s after refusing to fight in the military in a civil conflict. This legendary Argentinian outlaw became a folk saint because of his deeds – stealing with his gang from the rich and giving to the poor. Today, Gauchito is praised as a „people's saint“, as a protector of the poor, oppressed, and all people who are living on the margins of society.
In the portrait of Antonio Gauchito Gil there are candles (which can very often be found on his shrine), and medallion of San Muerte. Legend says that this medallion saved him from the bullet and certain death.
