Our Lady of Guadalupe
Vision of Virgin Mary which appeared to an Aztec convert, Juan Diego on December 9, 1531, on Tepeyac hill, outside of the Mexican capital. This retablo expresses Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe with her hands together in prayer and her eyes cast down. She is surrounded by a halo of golden rays and she stands on a crescent moon which is supported by a winged angel. Our Lady is the Patron Saint of Mexico and is implored for healing, strength, and compassion.
