"Morenitas Collection"

Guajira y La Basilica. This Guajira or Wayuu lady shows one of the icons of my birth city: Maracaibo, Venezuela.

This piece depicts a Wayuu lady in a traditional dress or "manta" showing a representation of the Our Lady of the Rosary of Chiquinquira Basilica.

Around the sides of the dress or "manta" are written part of the lyrics of Our Lady hymn:

¡Gloria a Ti, casta Señora,
de mi pueblo bravo y fuerte,
que en la vida y en la muerte
ama y lucha, canta y ora!

Autóctona Virgen de rostro bronceado...

Original acrylic painting on 4 x 12 x 1.5 inches gallery wrapped canvas.

Artist signature on the front.
