Description

Description: We offer a late 19th century Mexican shallow nicho or deep frame. It is 11” x 8 ½” with a hand painted Anima Sola retablo scene, recessed about one inch behind the painted blue repousse frame. The Anima Sola represents the departed ancestral soul waiting in purgatory; this figure is in broken chains, enveloped in flames. The recessed shelf would have held additional devotional images, paper or cloth flowers, and small silver Milagros. Item #DA00168.

Condition: Overall scattered speckled paint loss to frame, though generally in very good condition.
