Handmade Tin Virgin of Guadalupe Wall Hanging from Mexico

Artisans Aida and Cristino Lavariega present a decorative wall hanging that preserves the traditions of tinsmiths from the state of Oaxaca in Mexico. The artisan-crafted wall decor is made from tinplate using repujado or repousse metalworking techniques and features the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe much loved by the Mexican people as the subject. The figure is painted by hand including intricate details such as the Virgin's facial features and mantle.
