ABOUT MY RETABLOS
Retablos date back
many centuries throughout Latin America and are primarily used to
honor saints thought to remedy various problems of everyday life.
Lithography made it possible for people to replicate religious
figures on tin for display on their own home altars.
are two-dimensional paintings on tin or wood of a saint or about a
religious theme. "Retablos" and "exvotos" are
sometimes used interchangeably, but retablo most correctly refers to
sacred images painted on wood while exvotos are images painted on tin
My original retablos
are designed by meticulously hand painting in acrylic on hand
sculpted wood that has been etched and decorated. These original
paintings are divinely inspired, take a great deal of time to
complete and sell for hundreds of dollars.
The retablos replicas
I offer are a full color reduction made from my original painting by
making a Giclée in the style of older engraved prints. The
print is then adhered to the same wooden sculpted frame used in my
original paintings and permanently sealed. This method of
reproduction makes the saints affordable to just about anyone.
Each of my retablos, whether original or replicas, has a label adhered to the back offering a biographical account of the birth, life and death of the saint or image depicted. Finally, each retablo is hand signed by the artist.
