For over three hundred years, the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe in her Mexican invocation has been celebrated in New Mexico. Our Lady of Guadalupe, the famous image of Mary in a body halo, has transcended the bounds of religion and institution to become an iconic folk symbol of the spirit that unifies and protects. This is a visual celebration of this powerful devotion and of the multi-faceted images that artists, folk artists, and everyday devotees create in the name of Nuestra Senora.
