In the battles Chavez waged at home and abroad, he captivated his base by championing Venezuela's poor. "This is the path: the hard, long path, filled with doubts, filled with errors, filled with bitterness, but this is the path," Chavez told his backers in 2011. "The path is this: socialism."

Images of Venezuela's late President Hugo Chavez are surrounded by religious iconography inside a small chapel in the 23 de Enero neighborhood of Caracas, March 4, 2015. Before his struggle with cancer, the charismatic leader appeared on television almost daily, speaking for hours and breaking into song or philosophical discourse. He often wore the bright red of his United Socialist Party of Venezuela, or the fatigues and red beret of his army days the same uniform he donned in 1992 while leading an ill-fated coup attempt that first landed him in jail and then launched his political career.

In 2007, Chavez said he felt a deep connection to the plains where he grew up, and that when died he hoped to be buried in the savanna. "A man from the plains, from these great open spaces ... tends to be a nomad, tends not to see barriers. What you see is the horizon," Chavez said.

Chavez burst into public view in 1992 as a paratroop commander leading a military rebellion that brought tanks to the presidential palace. When the coup collapsed, Chavez was allowed to make a televised statement in which he declared that his movement had failed "for now." The speech, and those two defiant words, launched his career, searing his image into the memory of Venezuelans. Tomorrow, the country will mark the second anniversary of Chavez's death.
