Our Lady of Peace in Love, Original Collage
OUR LADY OF PEACE IN LOVE (18″ x 24″) is an original collage by Deco, double matted. and framed in a rustic silver wood frame, with all archival materials, including museum glass.
Our Lady of Guadalupe is an iconic image for the faithful of Mexico and believers all over the world. She appears everywhere – from on the bumpers of trucks to key-chains. I have even saw a poster that proclaimed: “In Guad we trust”. I was inspired to explore this image when I saw the huge icon that presides over the Santa Fe Farmers Market. I decided to present the Lady in the traditional colors and symbols, which have been interpreted with rich significance over the past four centuries. I have named my version OUR LADY IN PEACE IN LOVE and surrounded her with the roses that convinced the unbelieving to see anew.
Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin had visions of the Virgin Mary and reported them to the archbishop of Mexico City in 1531 with the instructions to build a church, but the bishop sent Juan Diego back with an order for proof. The beautiful maiden of the apparition agreed to provide miraculous evidence and told Juan Diego to gather flowers from Tepeyac Hill, normally barren in December. He found Castilian roses, a flower not native to Mexico, and he gathered them up in his tilma, his cloak. The Virgin arranged the flowers, and when Juan Diego opened his cloak in front of the bishop, the roses fell to the ground revealing an image of the Lady imprinted on his tilma. The tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe is preserved in a shrine in Mexico.
