Wooden Framed Retablo of Archangel Raphael – 25962
A 13” tall hand-painted and framed wooden retablo with a center image of the Archangel Raphael.
Retablos are painted depictions of important religious icons and are found throughout the Americas as well as Europe. Nichos are wooden frames or boxes – much like a shadow box – which is used to either frame an iconic image or to serve as a mini-altar.
Our nicho-style retablo is carved from wood with a one-inch deep frame just deep enough to hold tiny offerings such as Milagros, photos or religious medals.
The interior of the nicho features a hand-painted depiction of the Archangel Raphael holding a fish. Raphael is known to help guard travelers on their journey and as the angel of healing for people's minds, spirits, and bodies.
The frame of the nicho is beautifully painted as well. Soft colors were used on this hand-crafted folk art piece including violet, yellow, gold, royal blue, soft blue and green.
It measures 13” in height, 6” in width and is ready to hang.
