Overview

The Virgin of Guadalupe is known throughout Latin America-and indeed the world-as the patron saint of the downtrodden and oppressed. Since her miraculous apparition before the humble laborer Juan Diego in the countryside around Mexico City in the 16th century, millions have prayed to her and decorated their homes, churches, cars, and even their bodies with her saintly image.

In this vibrant and whimsically designed book, Marie-Pierre Colle brings together more than 125 color photographs revealing the many manifestations of the Virgin, from majestic oil paintings to brightly colored keychains. The passion and faith of the Virgin's followers provide ample inspiration for art of all varieties. Here is a shocking-pink neon altar by a contemporary artist, as well as sequined representations that brighten the banners celebrating the Virgin's Feast Day on December 12. Running alongside these images is the "Nican Mopohua," a famous poem written after her apparition. A beautiful counterpoint to the illustrations, it describes her encounter with Juan Diego and is featured in both Spanish and English.

Author Bio: Marie-Pierre Colle, the daughter of a French father and a Mexican mother, was a great admirer of Mexican arts and crafts of every period. Her previous books include Vendome's Houses of Puebla and Latin American Artists in Their Studios.
