Guadalupe is close to my heart due to my affection for the Hispanic culture, which I first became acquainted with during my years in Arizona. The central image of the virgin is actually the front side of a phone card which I picked up off the street- I assume it was discarded by one of the many workers from Mexico and Central America who have come to help us. It is mounted on a matted print of some shrimp, and adorned with a metal wheel. A ceiling tin is underneath, resting on a placemat of desert wood. The whole compostition is supported bu a painted wooden cabinet door. 24" x 18" SOLD
