This poster was created as an answer to the inconceivable attacks to the spanish judge Baltasar Garzón in April 2010. The magistrate Garzón, who has investigated crimes against humanity judging Latin American dictators and Al Qaeda and ETA terrorists among others, was suspended after starting some investigations about Franco's dictatorship and crimes.

The poster has many symbols hidden in a quite cryptic way. The eagle eye represents the Francoism dictatorship, the Spanish fascism, that used an eagle in their flag (looking quite similar to Hitler's eagle). The yellow reflection of the iris represents the justice scales, showing what the eagle is about to attack. The slogan "Homo Homini Aquila" is a copy of the sentence by the philosopher Thomas Hobbes "Homo Homini Lupus", refered to the power of self-destruction that the human being has. The baseline says: "The Francoist predators, hunting the justice".

This poster is part of the exhibition En los territorios de la cultura. El cartel español actual, carried out by the curator and design historian Raquel Pelta. The exhibition was installed in may 2010 in Haapsalu, and later that year in Parnu, Estonia.

This poster was also selected and exhibited in the 11th Bienal de Mexico, in October 2010.
