The dawn of the new society reveals itself in the murals as a very child-centered world. Children's presence in so many of the murals forces one to concur with Kunzle's comment, "The insistence, again and again, on children, in school or (more often) at play, illustrates the axiom, proclaimed by the public art of Allende's Chile, that in an egalitarian society children are the only privileged sector."
