Our Lady of Guadalupe


Images of Our Lady of Guadalupe are familiar sights throughout New Mexico.  Both of these larger than life murals were boldly painted on the walls of two restaurants in which we ate: the one on the left in Ranchos de Taos and the other in Santa Fe in Palacio Cafe (This painting is an oil on canvas with 23 kt gold leaf by Norberto Zamudio-Escarcega and it is 80x50 inches).  Our Lady definitely is not confined to churches.

  2. Would be interesting to see more. I notice she is painted in a red dress, but her veil is green in one and blue in the other...beautiful.

  4. It's interesting how Catholicism has been so integrated into the life of the community in certain areas of the west. It is unlikely you'd find these images on restaurant walls in New York City; or even Ocala.
