ABOUT THE ART OF CUZCO:

If you were to walk through any Spanish Colonial~Latin American Museum or through any fine art gallery that specializes in carrying 16th-18th century "Devotional Art" pieces from the Latin Americas,(with the focus on Cuzco Peru) this is the type of painting you will find..This traditional style of painting originated after the 1534 Spanish Conquest of the Inca Empire..These style of paintings are from Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cuzco, Peru during the Colonial period from the 16th to the 18th Centuries.

The European influence in these paintings came from the Spanish who tried to convert the Incas to Catholicism. The Cuzco School that was made famous for these style paintings,was a Colonial movement of indigenous painters that were educated in the Baroque religious painting tradition of Spain.

These specific style of paintings are characterized by their exclusive use of religious images that are painted with lots of Gold leaf,tans,navy's,as well as lots of rich warm tones.

ABOUT THE GUADALUPE PAINTING:

The painter that was used to paint this painting,studied directly under the Cuzco Masters of Peru & is a master himself in this style of art,keeping the Cuzco art style alive,while staying traditional.

She is delicate in features,her face tilted,hands in prayer.her outer gown painted in navy with 22k gold leaf stars painted all over it,her gown under is done in a garnet,burgundy color,with lots of gold leaf embellishment..The eyes of Guadalupe,as well as the Angel who holds her up at the bottom,are painted large,with both having a rosy color in the face.The overall color to her face is not ivory,but a warm brown,showing she comes from the indigenous people of the Latin Americas..Her glow is also done in the 22K gold leaf.

ABOUT THE PURSE:

She is beautifully painted onto a western style crossbody/shoulder purse that is made of a high quality brown Italian Leather,that has been hand rubbed to give it a distressed look.It is a soft pliable leather...Outside the Guadalupe are machine pressed gold studs that are there to stay..Colors fade from tan to a darker brown as you get to the perimeter. This is a lengthy bag,between having a 18" strap,the body of the purse & then the 10" fringe.The strap is all studded,that lends itself to having a more western appeal.

Whether your out shopping,traveling or have children,crossbody purses are great,since they leave your hands free,plus they're a little safer because they are on the body!

Like any piece of 'fine art',this requires respect,care & love!
