In stock

Colorful original painting of St. Martin de Porres. Born in Peru in 1579 to a Spanaird and a freed slave, St. Martin was the earliest known person of color accepted into the Dominican order against all odds. Martin believed that all work, even the most menial, was sacred. He ran shelters and orphanages, gave his measley makings to the poor and even ministered to the stray dogs and cats. St. Martin is the patron of mixed-race people, barbers, innkeepers, public health workers, and all those seeking racial harmony.

9" x 22" Encaustic on pine with metal niche, niche is covered in 54 individually painted flowers. Encaustic is the art of painting with beeswax mixed with resin and pigment. Paintings have a lot of texture and interest. All paints are handmade.
