Description

This colorful 19th century Mexican Folk retablo represents ‘La Cruz de Animas’, or ‘The Cross of Souls’. The Cross of Souls reminds us to pray for our departed ancestral souls.

Layered with symbolic and allegorical imagery, the Cross of Souls represents Christ on the cross, flanked by the sun and moon and surmounted by the Eternal Father above. Along the base of the cross, twelve ‘anima sola’ (lonesome departed ancestral souls) plead for salvation while awaiting judgement in the flames of purgatory.
