Description

This charming 19th-century Mexican folk retablo represents ‘San Ramon Nonato’, patron saint of children, childbirth, confidentiality and confession. In Mexico particularly, confessors confide in San Ramon with their secrets, and to keep him from talking or gossiping, a padlock is placed at his feet. Other petitioners, hoping to keep their confessions confidential, rub his lips, tack gum to his mouth, and even offer bribes.
