San Pasquel Alter, Artisan Crafted Wooden Saints 10.5" x 4" x 4.5"

This wooden figure of San Pasquel is hand-carved in family workshops in very tiny villages surrounding Chichicastenango. Kiln-dried wood is shaped using basic hand tools and Machetes; then family members paint the bright designs.

San Pasqual was a simple Franciscan monk devoted to the Holy Eucharist.  He was assigned duties in the monastery’s kitchen. He was known for making wonderful meals with the simple foods that he found in his humble kitchen.  As he cooked, his fellow friars would see him meditating or praying and believed he had the help of angels to assist him in his daily tasks.  He is considered the patron saint of cooks and kitchens.  San Pasqual died on May 17,1592 which is his current feast day.
