San Isidro?

After reading Arthur Scott’s post from November 23rd, (Early New Mexico Tinwork - Saint Nathalie) I realized that one of the pieces he describes in his article (a San Isidro bulto with two oxen) is very similar to what is pictured here. This picture comes from a collection of color slides that were most likely taken in and around Santa Fe in the 1940’s. This particular picture is one of eleven that appear to be taken inside a house that contained an amazing collection of what may be Spanish Colonial antiques, although I am not an expert.

    Yes it is San Isidro and he looms as if he had something in his hands. A prayer book in his right and staff in his left? We also have San Isidro in Agua Fria and they have one in Corrales. The thing is it looks like he is on top of a wooden radiator cover.

    That is definitely San Isidro, but now to find out where the photo was taken. There is a tag on the table - so maybe it was in a museum or shop?? Nice weaving Rio Grande weaving in the background, too.

    JB, Nice work; If you are ever inside the Catholic Church in
    Tesuque, you'll see a statue that looks identical to your
    photo.
