WOOD HAND CARVED ARCHANGEL SAINT RAPHAEL AND OIL PAINT ON CANVAS.

The hand carved altars probably originated with the Christian knights of the Crusades and the Spanish reconquista (the 700-year struggle against the Moors in the Iberian Peninsula).

The Christian warriors, who frequently found themselves far away from their home churches, carried small portable box-altars for worship and protection against their enemies.

These earliest retablos usually featured religious themes, especially those involving Saint James, the patron saint-warrior in the fight against the Moors.

Retablos came to the New World as small portable altars, Nativity scenes and other religious topics used by the early priests to evangelize the Indigenous.

Meticulously hand carved with Baroque style from the 16th century to the early 18th century.
