These paintings of the Virgen de Guadalupe are on an arched and carved piece of wood that is known as a batea, in the style of those from Apaseo but these were handmade in Patzcuaro, Michoacán. They were both painted by the same artisan but if you look closely, there are small differences--eyes open, eyes closed, trim and accent colors are different. All are painted in a muted palette that makes them look older but they were made recently. The Virgin is always wearing her deep blue rebozo and the radiant light beams from around her. They do not stand up but can be leaned against the wall. A hanging hook is attached to the back.
