Madonna Surrounded by Miracles

19th Century Ecole de Cuzco retablo on wood.

Painting of crucifix on reverse.

The figure of the madonna is surrounded by three ex voto style scenes of miracles at which she appears to rescue or give solace to the victim.

The reverse is a dark and somewhat frighting vision of a cross, with a figure from a religious brotherhood in a hooded cape on one side, and a woman attacked by a devil on the other.
