Lady of Guadalupe by mhr79 Lady of Guadalupe by mhr79
The Virgin Mary appeared to Saint Juan Diego, an Indian Christian, whom she sent to the bishop with the request to build a Church in her honor on the hill where she appeared. The bishop asked Juan Diego for a sign to prove that the Virgin had appeared to him. Our Lady appeared to Juan Diego again and promised that his uncle would be healed. She directed Juan Diego to gather a bouquet of flowers that miraculously appeared on a bush nearby to present to the bishop. Juan Diego gathered the flowers in his tilma (cloak). When he opened his tilma before the bishop, the flowers fell to the floor, and the bishop was amazed to see the miraculous image of the Mother of God imprinted on the cloak. The image persuaded the bishop to believe what Juan Diego had told him, and the Church was built.

Extremely well drawn my friend. Our Lady of Peace has this beauty that is just stunning, yet sorrowful at times... you drew Her expression excellently. The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Guadalupe is one of the places I HAVE to visit, and the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes as well.

Again, great job!

Hey this piece is amazing! I was wondering if I would possibly use this as a tattoo? Its not 100% yet, but I feel strong about it. Its on a pesonal level, for someone who was very close to me. If not I fully understand. Beautiful drawing!!

(in regards to the previous comment)
nevermind, I've enough people who've responded for interview

I really like the image by the way, you have a lot of talent and she looks so realistic. I just wanted to point out one mistake of little importance in your work. The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is supposed to be pregnant due to
1. the way her hands are resting
2. there is a flower on her dress that to the aztecs symbolized pregnancy
3. the cord thing or <l> cintayou drew as a belt thingconnotates with a phrase in spanish "estoy encinta" which roughly translates as "I am pregnant"

don't mind me, I love the image you've made, i just like to spread knowledge.

Hello, one of my HW assignments for my Art and Literature class this summer is a project and I chose to do representations of Our Lady of Guadalupe and I was wondering if you'd be willing to cooperate with me by first telling me more about the image aside from what you already wrote in the artist comment box, and then answering some more specific questions.
Thank you for your time.
