Brighten your day with this charming handmade painting of the Virgin Mary (Maria). It is an example of depictions in Spanish art of the Immaculate Conception, the doctrine that the Virgin Mary was herself conceived without stain of original sin (it does not refer to the conception of Jesus). She appears here as if in a vision, standing on the moon and with a crown of stars.
Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, is a central icon for both the Catholic and Orthodox churches and is a popular subject in Christian art.
The Cuzco School 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 Cuzco paintings executed by local artists 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.
