This large 20 x 14 inch Mexican folk retablo represents 'Las Animas Benditas', or in English, 'The Blessed Souls'. The Anima Sola, for those unfamiliar, is a departed ancestral soul awaiting judgement in the flames of purgatory. The Anima Sola (Lonely Soul) may be invoked when a family member or loved one dies in sin or conversely, to send an enemy to a state of temporary suffering or misery in purgatory.
In the case of this retablo, at least one purgatorial soul has been saved, lifted into heaven by angel. Buoyed above on a bed of puffy clouds is the Eternal Father, Saint Joseph, Jesus, Mary and the Espiritu Santo represented in the form of a white dove.
Dimensions: 14 inches vertical x 10 inches horizontal.
Condition: pristine, with only a few very minor spots of paint loss. Unrestored. Original.
