About

This painted Retablo on tin is in a distressed tin frame, very likely original to the piece. The tin edged frame encases glass over painted foil. The left side vertical, of tin, glass and foil is missing, while on the other intact side, a large, silver Heart Milagro and a small paper rose are attached to the top edge of the upper right corner. The embossed top triangle of painted tin, creating a dark green gable to the top of the frame, is also worn and rusted. The Retablo itself, a faded and distressed image of a lovely St. Isido, and the typical image of oxen working the planted fields he protects, is visible but damaged by time and conditions.
