For over three hundred years, Our Lady of Guadalupe in her Mexican invocation has been celebrated in New Mexico. Our Lady of Guadalupe, the famous image of Mary in a body halo, has transcended the bounds of religion and institution to become an iconic folk symbol of the spirit that unifies and protects. This is a visual celebration of this powerful devotion and of the multifaceted images that artists, folk artists, and everyday devotees create in the name of Nuestra SeƱora.


Jacqueline Orsini Dunnington is the author of several books, including Guadalupe: Our Lady of New Mexico (Museum of New Mexico Press).
