The Virgin of Guadalupe
Over at Recuerda mi Corazon, Rebecca is hosting "A Virgin a Day" theme. Starting on the first of December and going through until the 12th she's inviting us to share our photographs. I think this is leading up to a festival on December 12th when Mexico celebrates the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This is the virgin you see images of all over in Mexico. I've collected a few images of her in our travels and so I'm posting them here. The one above was pinned to a wall in Alamos, Sonora.
The two below were found in the old part of Mazatlan. I love the way these two are entwined with the flag of Mexico and are truly living shrines done by regular people.
If you're at all interested in the Virgin iconography, take a look at the links under Rebecca's blog. You won't be disappointed.
