Our Lady Of Guadalupe
Painting - Oil On Canvas
Dedicated to S. y Sra. Favela. The Virgin of Guadalupe: Every detail symbolic. She is brighter than the sun; Her foot rests upon the moon; the stars on Her mantle are in the same relative configurations as the stars in the heavens on the morning of December 12, 1531; the northern constellations on Her right - the southern constellations on Her left. Further, the golden filigree over Her rose colored gown matches the topography of the Mexican lands once ruled by the Aztecs.
Despite more than twenty-two languages and almost fifty dialects spoken at that time, all were able to read and understand all that is contained in this Sacred Image. So it was in this manner eight million natives were converted to Christianity in the incredibly short span of seven years.
Iconography is a process of meditation and prayer with the presence of God and the Saint we are honoring. Icons are windows to the Divine, therefore, the artist must be open to the active presence of God and the Saint.
