Hand Carved and Painted Retablo of St. Benedict – 26024
A 7.5” tall carved wooden batea hand-painted with an image of St. Benedict, Patron Saint of Europe.
Bateas are hand-carved wooden “trough” bowls typically used throughout Mexico, South and Central America to knead dough and mix masa for tortillas.
This small version of a batea has been transformed with hand-painted spiritual art featuring St. Benedict with his crosier.
It measures roughly 7.5 inches in height, 3.5 inches in width. Ready to hang, primary colors are violet, gold, brown and red.
