The engraving brings together, in a panoramic view, four spaces with different stories. On the right, is the triumphant entry of the Spanish conqueror into a mythical city. To the left, a Mediterranean-style building next to a wall of shells can be seen. In the top-centre a multitude of angels cluster around the sun and, finally, in the lower-centre, groups of characters are arranged in small anecdotal episodes. The whole can be read as a neo-baroque synthesis: the superposition and the gathering of dissimilar content that forms a new American reality.
