A bronze sculpture of an abstracted male figure in motion. His knees are bent to the right and his arms are tucked along his torso. The strong diagonal lines make him appear to be propelling in movement with great force. Juxtaposing the dark wooden base, there is light patina in the mostly bright bronze.

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.

This abstract print has a series of overlapping lines, emphasized by shading. Created in a variety of techniques, the shading creates an incoherent system of depth, as well as a variety of textures. At the top left, there is an anthropomorphic face. The print is sighed and dated (l.r.) "S W Hayter 47" and numbered (l.l.) "57/70" in pencil.

What does fascism look like?

How can you represent an ideology? 

What kind of visual language can be used to materialize it?
How is that vocabulary exported, adapted, distorted, recycled, simplified, or distilled—while keeping the reference clear?
