Retablos: Judy de Bustamante

This is an amazing photo gallery. I love the works, especially "Mater Dolorosa" which is described by de Bustamante.

"I constructed this image as my interpretation of the Virgen [sic] Dolorosa, which can be found everywhere in Ecuador. The image, of rather questionable aesthetic value, arrived in the country for the first time early in the last century, in the form of three printed reproductions of a French oil painting, and they have been endlessly copied and reproduced ever since in an infinite variety of sizes and image quality."
