18th Century Spanish Colonial Oil on Copper - San Nicolas Tolentino. Illustrated in 'Pintura Mexican en Lamina'.
San Nicolas Tolentino (Saint Nicholas of Tolentine) is the patron saint of sick animals, babies, mariners and souls in purgatory, and he is almost always depicted as he is here, holding a white partridge and a stem of lilies. According to popular belief, San Nicolas fell ill one day and was instructed to eat more meat. He was served a partridge and after making the sign of the cross, the bird came to life and flew away. In another miracle he was venerated by nine passengers on a capsized ship -- appearing in the sky with a white lily, he broke the storm and saved them all.
