The Artwork on the Pendentives Flanking the Ponce de Leon Archway

The Artwork on the Pendentives Flanking the Ponce de Leon Archway

These pendentives are painted and gilded, with lyres, and human figures. The artist was George W. Maynard. The human figures may represent the elements (air, fire, earth, or water), or the phases of Spanish exploration (adventure, discovery, conquest, or civilization). There also appears to be a reference to four of Spain's provinces (Girona, Alicante, Castellón, and the Balearic Islands). Finally, the name of Ponce de Leon appears over one of the wooden arches.
