Even More Beautiful in Person
The Loved Mother is even more beautiful and poignant in person than on the site. Its an iconic image representing both the religious aspect and also motherhood itself. I also have two of the Montalvo Familys secular panels, the village steps and the flower women climbing the hill. They are spectacular. Im proud to say that Ive lent to these artisans on Kiva, may their work continue uninterrupted. I particularly appreciate the icon style, being fond of Byzantine art myself. Thank you!
One of my two favorite Retablos. The figures are extremely well-carved and theres a beautiful wood finish that practically glows.
Beautiful Religious Portrayal
The colors of this portrayal of the Virgin and child are just stunning. The carving is exquisite and incredibly gorgeous. Words cannot do it justice!
