Saint Ferdinand
1730-1760
Querétaro, México

This statue of Saint Ferdinand, the King of Castile and León in Spain, was originally part of an altar screen installed in the Cathedral of Querétaro, Mexico, around 1750. Many cathedrals in Spain and Latin America installed main altar pieces dedicated to royal saints. Statues of Saint Ferdinand were often paired with ones of his friend and cousin, Saint Louis IX of France. The Denver statue was collected in Querétaro in 1920; its matching statue of Saint Louis is in a private collection in Mexico City.
As in Europe, the statues in altarscreens of Latin America were carved of wood. Fabric areas were treated with a technique known in Spanish as estofado, in which tissue-thin sheets of hammered gold were applied to a red gesso ground. Next, paint was applied over the gold leaf. Then the paint layer was stamped or etched through to reveal the gold underneath, in imitation of the elaborate brocade fabrics of the period. Areas depicting skin, such as the faces and hands, were created using a different technique known asencarnación, in which white gesso was painted in flesh tones, shellacked, and gently sanded. The process was repeated until the buildup of layers achieved a glowing surface imitating real skin. (Denver Art Museum)

Once upon a time, there was a woman in the valley. And the son of the big house did her a terrible wrong. So she came to his wedding, to put wrong to right… And after that, the woman made the wolves come to sing to her and the baby at night. Made them come and serenade her.
