This pattern is designed to represent a "retablo"
like the ones I see for sale during Spanish Market every summer
in Santa Fe. Many of the retablos are painted with flowers surrounding
the main image. Retablo is the term New Mexican Hispanics use
to refer to images of saints painted on flat wooden panels. The
oldest documented New Mexican retablos date to the 1780s. Some
still remain in Catholic homes, and are used during a family's
This pattern can be used as a mini tapestry.
It can be applied to a mat and framed. You can adhere it to a
large 7 day devotional candle with double sided archival tape.
Included is a color key, a full pattern and
two enlarged patterns, one of the bottom and one of the top just
in case you need a larger one.
I have included a word chart for those who
like to work with a word chart instead of a graphed pattern.
