The Peruvian hero Jose Olaya was an Indian fisherman of modest social status, differentiating himself from other Creole foreigners, military and economic situations peace, which led the Peruvian Independence as José de San Martín and Simon Bolivar. From 1823, when Olaya was shot by the Spaniards, near the Plaza Mayor of Lima, until 130 years after his death, the State first tried to pay homage to him with a canvas (1823) and then sporadically with a public monument (in 1867, 1923, and 1952). This text analyzes the social and political context in which these sculptures were proposed and inaugurated, what happened to them and how Olaya was represented.
