This offset lithograph from the portfolio "450 Years of Struggle: Homage to the Mexican People" reproduces a linocut by Bracho depicting the continuing ravages of exploitation of indigenous peoples by the Iberian presence in Mexico. A menacing conquistador in full armor and equally caparisoned horse compels a peasant family, in non-ancient Mesoamericano costume, to keep moving forward and away from home. An Aztec temple can be seen in the far ground.
