Arguably the most popular and highly revered image in retablo and Mexican art, this fine mid 19th century retablo painting on tin depicts "Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe" surrounded by a manderola of golden rays. Legend tells of her appearance to the peasant Juan Diego in 1521 at the mountaintop shrine of the Pre-Columbian goddess Tonantzin. She filled his cloak with roses and emblazoned her image on his cape as proof of the miraculous visitation. She is the patroness of the Americas and is sought to cure all ills.
