By Fernando Sayan Polo, this splendid portrait of the Holy Virgin reveals the influence of Peru's pre-Hispanic art that melds with European styling. His color palette is one favored by the ancient Inca, and the patterns on Mary's gown recall colonial art created by ancient artists. Yet Our Lady's lovely face and halo suggest Spanish paintings. This exquisite portrait is adorned with bronze leaf.
The artist works in the style of Renaissance masterpieces found in the convents and churches of Cuzco. The painting is a copy of a classic portrait, a theme he often repeats. Sayan gives it his own artistic interpretation.
Titled "Virgen Divina" in Spanish.

"This is absolutely beautiful."
The face draws you in and the Andean style with the gold is absolutely beautiful. It is also at a great price. Framing is costing more than the icon. Highly recommended.
