Our Lady of Guadalupe, Peruvian Tin Art, One-of-a-Kind Hand Painted Art and Decoupage, 4" x 4" x 1" Folk Art 25

Peru
$29.00

High quality painted tin folk art from Peru is designed with decoupage and hand painted 4" x 4" x 1"

The Virgin of Guadalupe is depicted with brown skin, an angel and moon at her feet and rays of sunlight that encircle her.

The appearance of the Virgin of Guadalupe to an indigenous man is said to be one of the forces behind creating the Mexico that we know today: a blend of Spanish and native blood. Her dark skin and the fact that the story of her apparition was told in the indigenous language of Nahuatl and in Spanish are said to have helped convert the indigenous people of Mexico to Christianity at the time of the conquest. She is seen as having a blend of Aztec and Spanish heritage.

Her image has been used throughout Mexican history, not only as a religious icon but also as a sign of patriotism. Miguel Hidalgo used her image when he launched his revolt against the Spanish in 1810. She could be seen on the rebels’ banners and their battle cry was “Long Live Our Lady of Guadalupe.”
