#73 - NS de Guadalupe

Arguably the most popular and highly revered image in retablo and Mexican art, this very lovely 19th century retablo painting on tin portrays "Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe." Legend tells of her appearance to the peasant Juan Diego in 1521 at the mountaintop shrine of the Pre-Columbian goddess Tonantzin. She filled his cloak with roses and emblazoned her image on his cape as proof of the miraculous visitation. She is the patroness of the Americas and is sought to cure all ills.

Dimensions: Retablo measures 10 inches x 7 inches. Stand is shown for display only - NFS.
