She wears a golden crown atop flowing brown hair, its elegant arches bejeweled with beautiful stones. The Virgin gazes tenderly at little Jesus, revealing the great love only a mother can feel for her child. Fernando Sayan Polo portrays the Madonna named for Mount Carmel in the Holy Land, where a chapel was built in her honor before her assumption into heaven. In 1251 she appeared in England, offering favors and protection to those who wear her scapular. Also known as Immaculate Virgin and Star of the Sea, she inspired the Carmelite order.
Titled "Virgen del Carmen" in Spanish.
Fernando Sayan Polo has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1000 and the most recent for $500. Proceeds were used to purchase painting supplies (oils and canvas) and framing supplies (wood and tools) to craft his own frames.
