About the 'Santa Ana' 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 Santa Ana. An original design by the artist, her art print is decoupaged upon hand-carved pine wood in traditional form. The reverse side includes a hole for hanging and a story of the saint's life.

Santa Ana (Saint Anne), is also cited as Hannah in Hebrew, meaning favor or grace. The mother of Mary, Saint Anne is revered in Western, Eastern, and Islamic churches. According to apocryphal texts, In the era of 1BC, St Anne was married for many years to Joachim of Nazareth, a shepherd. When the couple could not conceive a child, Joachim went into the wilderness to pray to God and fast. An angel appeared to both, assuring them of a child to come. When Anne conceived Mary, she dedicated her daughter's life to God in gratitude. Saint Anne is celebrated as the patron saint of mothers, grandmother, housewives, educators, and the mother-child relationship.
