Folk Art Statue of Saint Agnes (Santa Inés)
This carved statue, or bulto, represents Santa Inés (St. Agnes) and was created by award-winning, Santa Fe artist Jose Armijo, whose work can be found in collections world-wide. Santa Inés is the patron saint of chastity, and is often depicted with a lamb (from the latin agnus). This hand-carved wooden figure has a naive, folky appeal and measures 12 inches high by 9.5 inches wide. Clearly signed and dated on the bottom of the plinth, it is in flawless condition and ready to find a place of prominence in any folk art collection.
