San Antonio Retablo

Finder of Lost Objects

"O, Holy San Antonio, your love of God and charity for all his creatures made you worthy on earth to posses miraculous powers. I humbly ask of you to whisper my petition (you request) into the ear of the infant Jesus whom you so loved. My gratitude will be always yours."

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.
