Out of Mexico comes some of the most colorful, whimsical, and gorgeous folk art. I am just in love with it. This piece is one I picked up while visiting Michoacan state, a state famous for being the final destination for the monarch butterfly after their miraculous migration spanning many miles.
This piece portrays the patron saint of Mexico, Virgin of Guadalupe or “Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe” (Our Lady of Guadalupe), whose image can be found around the country in many forms and places, from the dash of a taxi, to alters in family homes, to the stalls of any local mercado. To see the variation in how she is portrayed is impressive.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Happy Thursday. May you be inspired today.
