Long Description:
Each of the triangular prisms is 14-feet tall with a unique tile mural on one side. Each of the narrow murals has its own title, but together they form the artwork titled El Pueblo San José de Guadalupe. For example, in one titled Call to California, we see a pair of nattily-dressed colonial gentlemen discussing a primitive map of California, behind an oxcart heading into a ribbon of light which rises above those men to the small family, mother and father with arms linked holding a girl who is pointing to the golden hills of California.

The four tall murals surround a tiled floor with the title of the artwork and a map of Alta and Baja Mexico.
