Patron Saint Retablo Plaque – St Colette of Corbie


SKU: 1203301564 Category:


Long a popular folk art form in colonial Spanish and Mexican culture, retablos are devotional paintings depicting divine icons and symbols, particularly Catholic patron saints, often turned to in times of need or to express gratitude for a blessing. Displayed in homes to honor the saint or given as gifts of fortune and inspiration, retablos reflect a beloved historical tradition and cultural artistry. Made by hand in New Mexico, this retablo plaque honors Saint Colette of Corbie (patron saint of mothers-to-be). An original design by the artist, her art print is decoupaged upon hand-carved pine wood in traditional form. The reverse side includes a hole for hanging and a story of the saint.
