Neustra S. de guadalupe aparesida en mex[i]co

[1675]; 1651-1700
Our Lady of Guadalupe appears to a man who wears her image on his cloak. In the background is a scene of the apparition. Details include cacti on the hill, church, and roses.

A vision of the Virgin of Guadalupe, with native American features, appeared to Juan Diego, a native American, on a hill named Tepeyac near the site of a temple to the Aztec goddess Tonantzin (Mother of the People) in 1531. Bishop Zumárraga accepted the vision when Juan Diego presented his cloak, or tilma, filled with out-of-season roses to the bishop. The cloak was imprinted with the image of theVirgin. This portrait of the Virgin is the nineteenth known to have been printed in Mexico.
