San Rafael Arcángel Retablo
A superb example of the Archangel, San Rafael. Oil on tin retablo - circa 1880.
San Rafael, one of seven archangels who performs all manners of healing. With the exception of his unexpectedly rotund frame, San Rafael is almost always depicted as he is here, as a winged archangel with his traveler's staff and a speckled trout. The trout, which he evidently used to cure his father's blindness, is his most identifiable attribute. Saint Raphael is the patron saint of many things, including blind people, travelers, pharmacists, physicians, and nurses. He is often petitioned by those suffering from nightmares, mental illnesses, insanity, and bodily ills.
An all around superb example of the Archangel, San Rafael. Displayed in a 19th-century frame.
