About the 'San Pasqual' 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 Pasqual. 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.

Saint Pasqual (San Pascual Baylon) was born to peasant parents and spent his youth as a shepherd. He carried a book and begged others to teach him to read. While slowly learning in the fields, his interests turned to religious works. He became a lay brother in a Franciscan order and was known to be a simple, humble, and contemplative man with many visions. He worked in the kitchen of the monastery and stories abound of divine assistance with his kitchen duties and his empty baskets miraculously filled so he could feed the poor. San Pasqual is recognized as the patron saint of cooks, kitchens, and shepherds. 'I joyfully celebrate the food I am given. May it deeply nourish everyone I feed.'
