These paintings  are made of corn husk by women in Esteli, Nicaragua, with desires of overcoming. Most of them are single parent. 

Some paintings  are based on El Güegüense, others are of women and men wearing traditional costume.

I enjoyed it :)

      Vilma Trujillo's husband collected her coffin from the local morgue.
       
      A young woman in an isolated part of Nicaragua has died a week after being tied up and allegedly thrown on a fire in an exorcism ritual.
      Family members told local media that Vilma Trujillo had been attacked by four people led by a man who said he was an evangelical pastor.
      Juan Rocha denied burning Mrs Trujillo, saying evil spirits had suspended her above the fire and then dropped her.
      Relatives found Mrs Trujillo, 25, hours later with severe burns.
      The police have arrested Mr Rocha and a number of other people allegedly involved in the attack.
      The victim's husband, Reynaldo Peralta Rodriguez, said the mother-of-two was taken inside a church last week when members thought she was possessed after allegedly trying to attack people with a machete, the Associated Press reports.
      "It's unforgiveable what they did to us," he was quoted as saying.
      "They killed my wife, the mother of my two little ones. Now what am I going to tell them?"
      Pablo Cuevas, a spokesman for Nicaragua's Human Rights Commission, called on the government for firmer control over religious sects in the country.
      "It is incredible that these things can happen today, there has to be a review by the authorities into all the different denominations and religions," he said. "We can't have things like this happening."
      Women's rights groups said the case was an example of fanaticism and misogyny.
      Juanita Jimenez of the Autonomous Women's Movement (MAM) told local media that it was also the product of a lack of state presence in isolated parts of the country and an act of barbarity.
      "Apart from the religious aspect, nothing justifies an act that is as cruel as burning a woman, putting her on a fire with the help of other people who you have used religion to manipulate," the activist said.

      Yader Isaac Chávez Canales trabajaba como traductor y tenía novia con la cual planeaba casarse

      La juez Karen López Fuentes admitió la acusación y dictó prisión preventiva contra Yader Isaac Chávez Canales, quien enfrentará audiencia inicial el próximo 2 de marzo. LA PRENSA/WILIH NARVÁEZ
      Yader Isaac Chávez Canales dejó de usar camisas de manga larga y corbatas, y no volvió a visitar la iglesia de los Testigos de Jehová, desde que se convirtió en emo.Su cambio empezó en diciembre pasado y su exvecina Mariela Mejía nunca lo vio consumir droga. El emo de 18 años, fue acusado del parricidio de su madre Eymi Johana Canales Pérez, de 35 años, y del asesinato de su padrastro Denis Francisco Medina Moreno, de 27 años.Mejía, de 38 años, describe a su exvecino de la Zona Cinco de Ciudad Sandino como un joven educado y le sorprendió ver su cambio: uñas pintadas en color negro y el cabello un poco largo.Fue hasta el lunes que la Policía Nacional lo presentó, que ella se enteró que el joven tenía progenitora, ya que él vivía con su tío.
      Fue regalado
      “Estoy muy arrepentido”, manifestó Chávez Canales, quien compareció a audiencia preliminar resguardado por un fuerte dispositivo policial.Fernando Mejía, de 48 años, llegó a las afueras de los juzgados para tratar de ver a su exvecino que en más de una ocasión le dio de comer, luego que un tío supuestamente lo corriera de su casa. Además, asegura que el joven ha tenido una vida muy sufrida.Chávez Canales, cuando tenía cuatro años supuestamente fue regalado por su progenitora a una pareja de estadounidenses que conoció en la iglesia de Testigos de Jehová.El joven vivió 12 años en Estados Unidos, pero sus padres adoptivos fallecieron en un accidente de tránsito.Según Fernando, el joven le contó que él también iba en el vehículo, pero únicamente sufrió algunas heridas en la cabeza. Incluso le mostró algunas cicatrices.Las autoridades de ese país lo deportaron hace dos años, y supuestamente le dieron 50 mil dólares de indemnización, pero el dinero presuntamente lo habría agarrado un familiar.Chávez trabajaba como traductor, tenía novia, con la cual planeaba casarse. Tenía pocos meses de vivir en casa de su madre.

      Al menos siete agentes de la Policía Nacional llevaron a Yader Isaac Chávez Canales hasta los Juzgados de Ciudad Sandino, donde se realizó la audiencia preliminar para conocer los cargos que le imputan. LA PRENSA/WILIH NARVÁEZ
      Mazazos en la cabeza
      El fiscal Manuel Reyes detalló en la acusación que el viernes 17 de febrero, a las 7:30 p.m., el joven sostuvo una discusión con su progenitora, porque esta le tenía retenido su celular, ya que el acusado, el Día de San Valentín le sustrajo una plancha de cabello para comprar sustancias alucinógenas.Presuntamente, Chávez intentó agredir a su progenitora y por eso intervino Medina Moreno.Pero en el forcejeo ambos cayeron al piso de rodillas y en eso el joven aprovechó para agarrar un mazo y pegarle en par de ocasiones en la cabeza al padrastro, quien quedó desmayado.Con el mismo mazo también le pegó en la cabeza a su progenitora y al caer continuó la agresión hasta provocarle la muerte.Su padrastro trató de incorporarse, pero le propinó cuatro cuchilladas.Según la Fiscalía, el 18 de febrero, Chávez sacó los cuerpos al patio de la casa, los cubrió con ropa usada que vendía su mamá y les echó gasolina.Casi una hora los cuerpos estuvieron en llamas, al amanecer nuevamente cubrió los cuerpos con ropa y cuando pretendía huir fue detenido por sus vecinos.La audiencia preliminar estuvo a cargo de la juez Karen López Fuentes.El abogado Secundino Cuadra, defensor del acusado, pidió a la juez que al joven se le realice una valoración psiquiátrica y que se le realice una prueba toxicológica y de alcoholemia. La juez dio lugar a esta petición.
      Dio otra versión
      Yader Chávez lloró durante la audiencia y apretaba sus manos en las cuales se podían apreciar varios rasguños. En el ojo derecho se podía ver un moretón.Antes de empezar la audiencia preliminar dio breves declaraciones a los medios de comunicación. Al consultarle por qué cometió el doble crimen, respondió: “Mi padrastro estaba pegándole a mi madre y le iba a pegar con un mazo, yo para protegerla a ella, empecé a pegarle a él (a Denis Medina) y después de eso ella me empezó a agredir”, manifestó el acusado. Asimismo, manifestó que no consume droga.Entre los elementos de convicción que tiene la Fiscalía están pruebas testimoniales, acta de detención y ocupación del mazo, cuchillo, entre otras evidencias.

      For many years, Nicaragua was off the touristic trail because of its turbulent political climate. Today, with the political upheaval in the past, Nicaragua is attracting backpackers, families and older travellers to experience its fascinating culture and natural beauty. In this guide, you will discover the top things to check out during a weekend getaway in the country.
      Masaya craft market (Managua)
      To get a good look at Nicaraguan handicrafts you should visit the Managua market, where you will see woven hammocks in an array of bright colours, carvings, jewellery ceramics and other traditional items made by local artisans. Also try the food and drinks sold at the market to experience authentic Nicaraguan cuisine.
      Volcanoes
      Nicaragua is home to a plethora of active and extinct volcanoes, and a visit to Parque Nacional Volcán Masaya, where you can swim in a volcanic lake, is an absolute must. Located just outside Managua, this volcanic area has twelve miles of hiking trails winding between former lava fields and a huge sulfur-spewing crater.
      Volcano boarding
      Fancy sliding down the side of an active volcano on a snowboard? Who doesn’t? At the Cerro Negro volcano you can do just that! An abundance of volcanic gravel covering the sides of the volcano has made boarding extremely popular. Depending on your level of expertise, you whoosh down the slopes on your bottom or you can do it action hero style standing up.
      Plaza de la Revolución
      Plaza de la Revolucion is located in the historical centre of Managua on the shore of Lake Xolotlan. The architecture dates back to colonial times and adjacent to the square are some of Managua’s most important buildings including the Catedral de Santiago, Rubén Dario National Theater, the National Palace of Culture and Parque Central.
      Catedral de Santiago
      Known as ‘the old cathedral’, Catedral de Santiago was built in the 1920s but was heavily damaged in the earthquake of 1972 and abandoned. A great example of neoclassical architecture, its abandoned state also gives it a wonderfully spooky atmosphere.
      Rubén Dario National Theater
      Named after the famed Nicaraguan poet, the theatre is one of the most famous in Central America. It was one of the few buildings that survived the 1972 earthquake. The theatre hosts a whole range of activities such as concerts, exhibitions, and cultural performances.
      Parque Central
      In Parque Central you can find many historical monuments dedicated to national heroes and poets.
      Beaches
      With beaches stretching along the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, there is no shortage of places to lay in the sun and go for a swim. Nicaragua’s beaches are also home to some great waves, making it a popular destination for surfers.
      Beaches along the Pacific Ocean are generally more developed for tourism and the surfers tend to stick to this coast. The closest beach to Managua is Pochomil Beach, where you can find bars, restaurants and activities such as horse riding. If you want to enjoy a more quiet beach you should go to the untouched Caribbean coast, which gives you a chance to appreciate the wonderful Nicaraguan landscape without distractions.

    • Wow; apparently I must have struck a nerve. Lecture you? Ok, TRAVELLER; listen up and listen good. First of all, before I even responded to you I did read those links you shared on this forum and, what is more, I already knew about these cases long before you made it an issue here, as well as the ones that YOU don't even know about. So, what makes YOU  think I'm not aware of this happening in the organization? No one said Jehovah's organization is squeaky clean and ever so righteous as you so eloquently put it. Don't even go there suggesting I'm naive. Let me tell you buddy; I've seen and know just about everything the Apostle Paul mentioned in 2 Corinthians 6:9, 10; from Circuit Overseers, to Elders, to Missionaries, Special and Regular Pioneers, to publishers. EVERYTHING! Those who suppose to shepherd the flock were disfellowshiped for fornication, adultery AND homosexuality! Missionaries kicked out of their assignments for immorality. Pioneers swapping their spouses, Publishers raping other publishers, etc. I even know of about a brother who killed his wife so he could continue his affair with a porn star! So don't even ASSume I'm looking at the Spiritual Paradise with rosy-colored glasses on! I've seen it all! But just because I have 37 years in the Truth does not give me license to use this forum to broadcast every deplorable thing that goes on inside Jehovah's organization! That I refused to do! This is a forum to encourage one another. What's so encouraging about what you posted? Sadly, you must think the majority of us here, like Tom, are downplaying the serious nature of these events and we're not. It's just that we choose to find strength in knowing that sexual predators and those who use religion as a cover to abuse children will get what's coming to them by means of Christ Jesus' sword. And that right soon! Second: What is your motive? When you posted these links, the first thing I asked myself was why? Why did you take the merriment out of a photo meant to project humor only to harp on this disgusting tragedy when it is up to the ultimate Judge of us all - Not the Governing Body, not the Elders - JEHOVAH GOD who sees and knows everything?!  Judge you? Who, me? I don't have to Judge you; you judged yourself. Posting these depressing news articles is suppose to do what? Make the majority of us question the Governing Body's motives?  Yeah, you talk about your advocacy but even that is questionable. Advocate the real solution - what Jehovah is going to DO about those who prey on children and who violate His righteous laws, whether it's the Governing Body or Elders. No one is exempt from the day of His wrath. And about this forum. I thought it is for encouragement and sharing theocratic news; what's going on around the world in harmony with scriptural prophecies. That's what this forum is for. You are obviously not using it for that purpose. My point is that you used this opportunity to negate the photo with child sex abuse within Jehovah's org. rather than find the humor in it as it was suggested, and as many here have humorously contributed to. You took it to another level and it reeks of criticism! It's as if you pacified the Pope to unleash on your brothers! Now, here's something for you to wag your finger at since you defensively done so with me - Q: What do you have to say about those who were sexually abused as children by worldly people? That is also NOT A FUN TOPIC! So many of Jehovah's people were - and some still are - victimized by Shechemites in this world. Are you exempting them just because they are worldly? What encouragement would you offer a sister or brother who were subjected to or are being subjected to such abuse by worldly sexual predators? Would you plaster links all over this forum about it? Just wondering if you would have the same passionate advocacy for these victims as you do for Ann and the others. Third: As far as your personal relationship with Jehovah; you're right. I don't know how close you are to our precious Father. But I do know, as your spiritual sibling, you took the fun out of things and I'm telling you about it whether you like it or not. Get mad all you want to. Go and tell our Heavenly Father on me. Go ahead! Perhaps he'll lovingly chastise us both for making a mountain out of a mole hill. Or you'll get over it and move on.  Now get all this through your thick skull.
