La Bola (The Ball) is a Spanish metaphor for a mass of moving people. Here it refers to a group of revolutionaries marching to the next battleground under a stormy sky full of rolling clouds. You'll notice how it's not only men. Women played a critical role during the revolution and even fought alongside the men.
