19th century retablo painting on heavy gauge tin represents "La Alma de Maria" or " The Soul of Mary." In the foreground, the "Espiritu Santo" is represented in the form of a beautiful white dove. The retablo is displayed in the original reverse glass painted and punched tin nicho frame.
Nuestra Señora de Carmen (Our Lady of Mt. Carmel) is depicted in this colorful 19th century Mexican folk retablo painting. In the lower quadrant, three 'anima solas,' departed ancestral souls awaiting judgement in the flames of purgatory, plead for her mediation. The retablo is displayed in the original 19th century tin nicho frame - a work of art in itself.
