Canvas. The Mission San Xavier del Bac, built circa 1783 south of Tucson, Arizona, is affectionately called The White Dove of the Desert. This most famous of the missions founded by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino still ministers to the Papago Indians.Wiggins says, I tried to capture the spirit of the mission by representing Father Kino passing a dove to a Papago Indian boy.The dove represents the peaceful nature of this tribe. Storm clouds swirl above as a reminder of the struggles these gentle people faced. Not only did they battle nature, but the mission became their only refuge against the constant attacks by the fierce Apache Indians.The mission, home to statues draped in real clothing and brightly painted carvings, is open to the public every day as well as those on pilgrimage.
