This very rare 19th century Mexican folk retablo represents Saint Benedict of Nursia, the patron saint of gall-stones, kidney diseases, fever, nettle rash and inflammatory diseases. Saint Benedict is also venerated for protection against witchcraft, temptation and poison. The legend of the raven and the bread (represented as an attribute in the retablo offered here) is a story about a jealous priest who tried to poison Benedict with a tainted loaf of bread. Saint Benedict summoned a raven that he hand fed since birth to take the bread and dispose of it in a place where it would not be found or eaten by others. The raven flew away with the poisoned bread and later returned with the remaining untainted portions for Saint Benedict.
