This 19th century Mexican oil on tin 'oracion' (prayer) is dedicated to Santa Eduviges. Saint Hedwig is the patroness saint of Bavaria, brides, jealousy and difficult marriages -- known mostly for her generosity, bestowing all that she could give to the sick, the feeble, the impoverished and the imprisoned. In this image she is flanked by two young men, devoting her riches to a group of indigents at the gates of prison. The prayer, written in her honor, was offered by one of her many beneficiaries in commemoration of her good will.
Dimensions: 14 inches vertical x 10 inches horizontal.
