Colombia to put Gabriel Garcia Marquez on a banknote

Colombia is in the process of developing a new (possibly commemorative) banknote with the image of its greatest writer on it: Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The Nobel laureat who won the Nobel Price for Literature in 1982 died on 17 April 2014. Immediately a law was proposed to put his image on one of the Colombian banknotes. reports that another step has been taken in the process to reach a decision. The final green light could be given in December of this year.

I don't know about you but my imagination is running wild on all the great themes and images they could put on a banknote commemorating such a great writer.

Update 17 December 2014: The final green light has been given: Gabriel Garcia Marquez will be put on a banknote.
