A found mirror was used to reflect the intense summer sun directly over the Coat of Arms found on the facade of three distinct government buildings located in Guatemala: Palacio de la Policía Nacional (Palace of the National Civil Police), Palacio de Comunicaciones (Palace of Communications) and Palacio Nacional de la Cultura (National Palace of Culture), built by indigenous workers forced to work without pay under the Ley de Vagancia (Vagrancy Law) during president Jorge Ubico Castañeda authoritarian rule from 1931 to 1944.
