THE ART:

If you were to walk through any Museum that has Spanish Colonial~Latin American paintings,or any fine art gallery that specializes in carrying 16th-18th century "Devotional Art" pieces from the Latin Americas,(with the focus on Cuzco Peru), these are the type of paintings you will find & also come out of the Cuzco School.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 Cusco, 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. These specific style of paintings are characterized by their exclusive use of religious images, lack of perspective, and the predominance of red, yellow, and earth colors & lots of gold leaf.

The painter that was used to paint this painting,studied directly under the Cuzco Masters of Peru & is a master himself,having painted this lady so traditionally beautiful..She is painted with delicate small features & is looking down in humility,while holding a wooden cross with painted flowers..Her skin is not ivory,but painted a warm brown with rosy tones.She is painted wearing a beautiful gold gown with 22K gold leaf detailed painting atop of it.Her head covering is a navy color,with gold leaf detail. A white covering covers her neck.

She is painted on a brown distressed soft Italian Leather & is made in a western style tote that is whip stitched all along the borders,The handles are impressively made where it's solid leather on half of the strap & whipped stitched on the other half.This makes the handles nice & strong!
