Colorful Christ


This is the 62nd Annual Year of Spanish Market that showcases traditional art and crafts of the Spanish culture, including retablos, bultos, tinwork, straw appliqué, weaving, woodcarving, colcha embroidery, pottery, and furniture. 27 years ago the market broadened its market selections by also adding a contemporary Hispanic Market whose artists display their work in tents that covered several city blocks this year. This blue colored Christ is one of the many hundred of examples of artists' work in different media.
