Mexican retablos & ex votos
Colonial folk art

Retablos and ex votos, sometimes referred to simply as Santos by their owner, are a form of Mexican folk art introduced to take the place of Spanish religious art. Serving as devotional pieces, usually hand painted on tin, Retablos depict patron saints, while the story-telling Ex-votos depict events, emotions, crisis, petition, devotion and gratitude for spiritual intervention into earthly lives. Our screens and cabinets are painted in ex-voto style, however in the future, we hope to offer a screen of Mexican patron saints.
