Wooden Framed Retablo of Our Lady of Guadalupe – 26116
A 12.5” tall hand-painted and framed wooden retablo with a center image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
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 Our Lady of Guadalupe (the Madonna) and the frame of the nicho is beautifully painted as well. Bold colors were used on this hand-crafted folk art piece including orange, cream, yellow, mustard, turquoise and rose.
It measures 12.5” in height, 6” in width and is ready to hang.
Hand-crafted in Mexico.
