Our Lady of Guadalupe

This picture of the Virgin Mary follows the style of the popular Central American version known as ‘Our Lady of Guadalupe’. It hails from a famous 16th century apparition on cloth venerated in Mexico showing the Virgin in red, with blue cloak adorned with stars, the sun’s rays at her head, and crescent moon beneath her feet. When the man to whom she appeared, Juan Diego, was asked for proof of the apparition, dozens of Castillian roses cascaded from his clothes and her image was found imprinted on his cloak. Here she is shown in a grotto setting surrounded by glittering quartz and tiny candles of devotion. Acrylic on canvas (18in x 18in).
