Details

The hands of God himself present this portrait of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and a dove, representing the Holy Spirit, hovers above her. Fernando Sayan Polo recreates the moment in 1531 when Guadalupe first appeared in Mexico and, as proof of her visit, caused roses to bloom at the site. Because church leaders did not believe Juan Diego had seen her, she instructed him to gather a bouquet in his cloak, or tilma, and take them back with him. When the bishops opened the cloak, the Virgin's portrait appeared. The original tilma is on display in her Basilica in Mexico City.

Fernando Sayan Polo works in the style of Colonial masterpieces found in the convents and churches of Cuzco. The painting is a copy of a classic portrait, a theme he often repeats. But Sayan gives it his own interpretation. He adds details in low relief using precious bronze leaf.

Titled "Virgen de Guadalupe en manto" in Spanish.

"This is absolutely beautiful."

The face draws you in and the Andean style with the gold is absolutely beautiful. It is also at a great price. Framing is costing more than the icon. Highly recommended.
