The Archangel (angel of high rank) San Gabriel stands for “God is my strength” and is an angel who typically serves as God’s messenger. San Gabriel’s is usually shown carrying a horn which signifies Gabriel blowing a trumpet blast to indicate the Lord’s return to Earth. However in this artwork the same message is implied by the gesture of sprinkling of flowers by the Archangel.
Art of Peru is famous for The Cuzco School which was a Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cusco, Peru (the former capital of the Inca Empire) during the Colonial period, in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The tradition and European influence in these paintings originated after the 1534 Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire.
Drawing from the techniques of the past, modern Peruvian paintings are characterized by their use of exclusively religious subjects and the predominance of red, yellow and earth colors. They are also remarkable for their use of gold leaf. They often adapt the topics to depict their native flora and fauna as a backdrop in their works.
