SANTO NIÑO RETABLO ON A CART WHEEL


These two (2) retablos come hand in hand. They were carved on a cart wheel a very unusual medium. The metal that surrounds the wood can’t hold the structure in place. The Sto. Niño is depicted holding a globe, its other hand raised in blessing. Its crown is held by two (2) angels on top of his head. The circular frame is surrounded by acanthus leaves.
