Religious Folk Art

Handcarved saints from Guatemala

Carved Wooden Saints

Because over 90% of  Mexico is Catholic, one finds lots of charming and beautiful hand-made religious folk art all over the country. The saints, above, are from Guatemala, another very Catholic country. Religion is a part of every day life in Mexico, from the home altar to crossing oneself in front of every church, to the pinning of milagros, to the omnipresent image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. Catholicism is not native to Mexico–the Spanish brought it with them in the 1500’s. In indigenous towns and villages one still finds religious practices that harken back to the days before the conquest.

Wood Carved Santos from Guatemala

Here are a few shots of some of the Guatemalan saints now at GUILD. They are all hand carved and hand painted. We have lots of choices in colors and saints (St. Francis, John the Baptist, Jesus, St. Dominic, St. Anthony and others…muchos!  These are about 15″ tall. We also have some that are 8″ tall.

If you can’t make it to GUILD or you are looking for one particular saint, let me know, and I can send you some photos of what’s available.
St. Dominic is online right here.
