Oaxaca. the Tlacochahuaya altarpieces 4.

Other retablos of interest at Tlacochahuaya include the late colonial altarpiece dedicated to the Dominican American saint, Rose of Lima.
Here she is shown as a postulent with her novice's crown surrounded by roses. Above her is a rather severe portrait of Catherine of Alexandria with her wheel.
