This classic, colorful, charming 19th century oil on tin folk retablo painting represents Santa Barbara, one of the most elusive subjects in retablo art. Santa Barbara, patroness saint of fire, gunners, masons, miners and storms, was beheaded by her father in 235 A.D. who was in turn, struck by a bolt of fire from heaven. She is apparently popular with artillerymen, engineers, pyrotechnics and armorers because of her association with lightening.
** Attributed to the 'Red Eyelid Painter'. Mexico - circa 1860 - 1870.
Dimensions: 14 inches x 10 inches.
