Santa Barbara in Spanish Colonial Style - 12 inch square - gold background
Take a trip to Mexico. The artist, Miss Butler, has a flair for Mexican, Spanish, and Latin American styes and colors. this gorgeous pillow is a small representation of this artist's talent. Per the artist's description: "This pillow features a serene image of St. Barbara in a primitive, Latin American style, think 17th century Cuzco or Mexico. Santa Barbara, a popular patron saint among Franciscan missionaries in the New World, is the patron saint of explosions, lightning and canons. Because of this she is sometimes associated with the Santeria god of lightning and war, Shango. She is carrying her signature chalice and martyr's palm. Behind the saint figure is a background of honey gold faux wood, Other rich colors in the pillow are sumptuous wine and berry reds, teal, and forest green with metallic gold highlights. The back of the pillow is decorated with a floral band pattern with beautifully-detailed flowers in the same luscious colors on a teal and honey gold background. The pillow cover is made from a silky smooth 100% light-weight cotton, washable in cool water. The back of the pillow cover has a deep envelope closure. Great care was taken in matching up the pattern at the overlap. The placement of the floral bands in each pillow may vary from the sample in the photo."
