Hi Mark,  
I did a little googling. The artist is Juan R. Fuentes. The piece is titled "Strawberry Picker" but the original artwork on Fuentes's website is titled "Mayan Warrior".

Thank you David, I checked it out. He's a pretty prolific and celebrated artist!

Hi all,  
And isn't that the UFW logo in the palm of the warrior.

I think so yes. Obviously, why it would be in the hand of an apparently fallen Mesoamerican warrior of several hundred years ago is a discussion that would be interesting for sure, but certainly one I am not going to pursue here!
