A light reddish-buff earthenware <em>guan </em>罐 jar with a wide globular upper body and conical lower body on a flat base, and a short narrow neck with an everted, direct rim. There are two diametrically opposed lug handles connecting the rim to shoulder. The upper three-fourths of the body is painted with black pigment to depict six counter-clockwise sauvasticas (swastikas), or equal armed crosses, with each arm continued at a right angle into a squared coil. Each sauvastica is made up of a network of fine lines, with a shoulder band made up of five on one side and six on the other. Groupings of six or seven stacked horizontal lines, vertical wavy lines, and zigzags are around the interior and exterior of the neck. All patterns are separated and confined between solid band borders.

In the foreground, there is a man laying on a large human-sized book, one hand on his chin and the other holding a pencil to the page. In front of his pencil, the text &quot;Mendez&quot; and &quot;1945&quot; is printed. On the pages of the book are a skeleten-creature and on the opposite page an angel. Behind the man and the book is a large cactus, and then a large cross rises from its base. The cross is encircled by a large snake-like creature whose head is open, facing away, and an eagle is crucified with knives. Coming from the ends of the cross are what seems to be spears, pointing clockwise. Behind this foreground scene, there is an army marching under a flag with the skull and crossbones. A priest follows behind the army, seemingly coming from the open mouth of the large serpent whose tail holds the feet of the crucified eagle. To the left there are two more crucified figures, whose crosses are on fire. In the far background, there is a vista of a large city.&nbsp;
