Our Lady of Guadeloupe

I really like this wooden statue of Our Lady of Guadeloupe. I do not always like some of the artistic portrayals of this traditional image. I like this one for the following reasons:

1. Individually hand carved rays

2. She is beautifully painted and carved, in particular, her face.

3. the gloss over the paint is not "over the top"
