Spanish Colonial Archangel Ángel Arcabucero P1424

This magnificent Archangel sports what look like hula hoops or ribbon loops and a mysteriously abbreviated Latin motto and, most significantly, an arquebuse, which is a gun. This is The Church Militant letting you know it means business, as it extends the borders of Christendom to encompass the newly conquered pagan peoples of the Americas. This is an image of the Master.

20″ x 27″ oil on canvas mounted on burlap. Certificate of Cultural Importation on back.
