Attributed to Lorenzo Hernandez, one of Mexico's most revered retablo painters, this 19th century retablo represents "La Mano Poderosa," or "The All Powerful Hand" - also sometimes referred to as "Los Cinco Personas," a reference to the Extended Holy Family in the upper quadrant. The five figures represent Santa Anna, Santa Maria, Santo Nino, San Jose and San Joachim. In the lower quadrant, blood is flowing from the stigmata into an open gold chalice surrounded by the symbols of the passion and seven sacrificial lambs below. The number seven, a symbolic number in Catholicism, represents the seven holy sacraments and the seven deadly sins.
Displayed in a hand painted, period wood frame.
