Our Lady of Guadalupe, Hand Carved Saint Mary 10.5" X 17"

10.5" X 17"

    Out Lady of GUadalupe Hand Carved in Guatemala

    The Guatemalan santeros made santos in both the pre-Renaissance and Renaissance traditions. Many Guatemalan/Mayan individuals have a home shrine to their patron saint. Few can afford the finely carved lifelike santos of the Renaissance tradition and thus the majority of Guatemalan santos were and still are icons. The Mayan village santero made mostly orthodox icons and this position required moral demands on his behavior and lifestyle.
    Today a new type of santo has emerged in the streets of Guatemala, the Postmodern Santo. In this style all previous traditions have been thrown away. What is important is the visual impact upon the viewer. These santos use color and imagination to capture the eye of the viewer.
