Holding a palm leaf and a cross in her hands, Saint Barbara is the subject of this painting by Telma Morais. The Brazilian artist works in her characteristic naif style, depicting this venerated saint wearing an orange and red dress that represents the blood of Christ. She stands in a florid field. An oration on the left side of this painting reads "Saint Barbara, always stay by my side so that I can face, with raised forehead and serene face, all the storms and battles of my life."
Titled Santa Bárbara em Oração in Portuguese.
