Brighten your day with this charming handmade painting of the Virgen del Carmen.

To trace the origins of  “la Reina de los Mares” – the Queen of the Seas, it’s necessary to go all the way back to the Old Testament. To when the prophet Elias retreated to a cave in Mount Carmelo near Haifa, in Israel. This lead to the formation of the important Catholic religious order, the Carmelites, in the 12th century. Hundreds of years later, people began to ask for protection from the Virgin Mary of Mount Carmelo – the Virgin of Carmen. She was soon adopted by mariners and fishermen everywhere as their patron. 

This beautiful unframed painting depicts Virgen del Carmen, her symbol of purity, and the Christ Child. The images are wonderful with charming expressions. 

The Cuzco School was a Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cusco, Peru (the former capital of the Inca Empire) during the Colonial period, in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The tradition and European influence in these paintings originated after the 1534 Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire.

Drawing from the techniques of the past, modern Cuzco paintings executed by local artists are characterized by their use of exclusively religious subjects and the predominance of red, yellow and earth colors. They are also remarkable for their use of gold leaf. They often adapt the topics to depict their native flora and fauna as a backdrop in their works.

This exclusive Peruvian style artwork composition of the Virgen del Carmen will provide you with a wonderful devotional treasure. Buy it now.

NOTE: This painting is not stretched or framed.
