W19 Caulfield - INTLSTD 385 - Latin America: The National Period (Paper Study Room)

In this print, four women in shawls and layers of cloth are positioned on their hands and knees or laying on the ground. All of them are reaching for a small seed, perhaps a kernal of corn. Their bodies span two jagged cracks that split the ground in a small clearing in a field.

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 "Mendez" and "1945" 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.
