Nuestra Señora del Pueblito de Querétero
by Charlie Carrillo
This six-foot-high bulto of the Virgin coming forth with her angels exhibits all the traditional art forms of New Mexico. Her skirt is a hollow frame (fabric stretched over a dress-maker's form then gessoed to be stiff), and there are gold leaf accents, straw work, and sterling silver medallions on her crown. The figure at the bottom is St. Francis. The three globes represent the three Franciscan orders in the New World.
