This abstracted representational painting print is an interpretation of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City.
The symbolism reveals aspects of the disposition, personality, and spirituality of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as well as giving indications of Catholic theology. It also captures the essence of a miraculous event that has been celebrated and honored for centuries. Through its fine details and vivid colors, this print brings to life the legendary story of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The loose, faded brush marks express the gentleness of the Blessed Virgin Mary, while the flow of greenish-blue strokes are symbolic of her Fullness of Grace. The burst of white indicates the action of the Holy Spirit in the moment of the Incarnation of the Word with the traditional dark purple ribbon above her womb which reveals her maternity.
The absence of facial features are indicative of Mary's humility, and also provide the viewer with an opportunity for a unique, personal experience with Our Lady in prayer. Many patrons appreciate being able to experience her gazing at them with the perfect expression they need at any given time: "I can see her expression without it being painted exactly!"
