The vast iconography and imagery that attempts to depict Heaven, Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary and the saints brought over by the Spanish colonizers, resulted in folk versions known today as “Retablo Art”, a genre all its own. Originally a retablo was a statue or painting of of a canonized saint, the assigned patron and protector of the “pueblo”, “municipio” or “parroquia”. It was a significant part of the altar, even its center piece. Later on the practice evolved to include the painting of images to honor and thank particular saints to whom the devotee attributed his or her life changing miracle. This type of painting was specially referred to as “ex-voto”. It was commissioned or if he has the ability, the beneficiary painted the image himself.
