STAY ON THE LINE! This panel depicts the arrival of the Spanish and used to be displayed on the front of the Jacome Department Store in downtown Tucson. When the store was demolished in the 1970s, the Jácome family donated the art to the new convention center. The panel, although artistically well done, is historically inaccurate. It depicts the Spanish in heavy armor and with metal “conquistador” helmets; neither was worn by Spanish soldiers in Arizona. The Spanish had learned that to defend themselves against Native Americans, metal armor was completely unnecessary, although occasionally chain mail or padded, cotton vests were worn. As to headgear, if soldiers wore helmets at all, they were small and rounded, somewhat like the helmets from WWI. Also, placing the Native people in a subservient position at the bottom of the panel reflects a mythic, stereotypical worldview of the early 1900s rather than an accurate depiction of the 1700s.
