San Benito de Palermo - #5479
This very rare 19th century Mexican retablo on heavy gauge tin represents San Benito de Palermo, one of the only black saints depicted in retablo art. Saint Benedict, the patron saint of black slaves in the Americas, is also petitioned for protection against smallpox.

The retablo measures 10 inches vertical x 7 inches horizontal and is in excellent, original condition.
