Artigas is the beloved hero of Uruguay. His image is always present. Every coin, every school and every government office has his portrait. Uruguayans believes that this is his real face but that is an invention of the artist Juan Manuel Blanes, who along with a group of intellectuals decided to create a hero and the national identity.
