Fernando Sayan Polo depicts the Holy Family enjoying an afternoon in the countryside. Sumptuous brocades adorned with gleaming bronze leaf envelop the Virgin and Saint Joseph, and both are enthralled by little Jesus, who pets a little lamb. Christ is known as the Good Shepherd, a metaphor taken from the gospel and prefigured in the Psalms. Representing unblemished sacrifice, modesty and innocence, the lamb became a symbol of Jesus during the first century A.D.
The portrait emulates classic religious art from Cuzco's city's and monasteries.
Titled "Sagrada Familia" 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.
