San Jacinto 2


  • Represents ‘San Jacinto’
  • Layered with symbolic and allegorical imagery
  • 19th century Mexican Folk retablo
  • Available in Museum Quality Paper and Canvas


This fine and exceedingly rare 19th century Mexican folk retablo painting represents San Jacinto (Saint Hyacinth) rescuing the Sacred Sacrament and a statue of ‘Our Lady’ from a burning cathedral in Kiev.

According to popular belief, the enormous statue weighed far more than San Jacinto and then, during his attempt to rescue it, the statue miraculously became weightless.

San Jacinto is invoked by those in danger of drowning – hence the small vignette in lower left with two cattle and a life raft floating down river.
