Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe, Our Lady of Guadalupe Retablo
Patroness for Suffering and Compassion.
"Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of Perpetual help, you have been blessed and favored of God. We come to you today as your loving children. Watch over us and take care of us. As you held the child Jesus in your arms so take us in your arms. Protect and keep us safe in all we endeavor to do."
Retablos are a devotional folk art form from Mexico and the Southwest US. They are small paintings on wood of Catholic saints and angels. To create these affordable heart-felt paintings of saints, angels and blessings, Lynn Garlick hand carves and paints her original designs on the traditionally used ponderosa pine planks. Then she decoupages high quality prints of her originals onto pine boards, in an old school technique used for the Italian altar screens of medieval Europe.
