About the 'San Miguel' Retablo Plaque

Long a popular folk art form in colonial Spanish and Mexican culture, retablos are devotional paintings depicting divine icons and symbols, particularly Catholic patron saints. Chosen as representations and guardians of particular occupations and life situations, patron saints are often turned to in times of need or to express gratitude for a blessing. Displayed in homes to honor the saint or given as gifts of fortune and inspiration, retablos reflect a beloved historical tradition and cultural artistry.

Made by hand in New Mexico, this retablo plaque honors San Miguel. An original design by the artist, her art print is decoupaged upon handcarved pine wood in traditional form. The reverse side includes a hole for hanging and a story of the saint's life.

Recognized in several religions, San Miguel (Archangel Michael) defeated Lucifer and hurled the fallen angel into Hell. He appeared to Moses in the burning bush, talked with Abraham, and inspired Joan of Arc. He carries a scale so he can determine where a soul should go upon death. Known as the great protector, San Miguel is recognized as the patron saint of police, soldiers, grocers, radiologists, and children.
