Hand-Carved/Painted Batea Retablo of Archangel Gabriel – 26030
A 7.5” tall carved wooden batea hand-painted with an image of the “messenger” archangel Gabriel.
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 archangel Gabriel carrying the lily he gifted to Mary.
It measures roughly 7.5 inches in height, 3.5 inches in width and is ready to hang on a wall, above a door or as part of an altar. Primary colors are brick red, gold, toffee, blue and violet.
