From the workshop of Dr. Raffy Lopez comes these ivory santos, mostly antique ivory pieces, recovered and restored into new images--complete with silver wings! From San Vicente Ferrer, the Archangels to seraphims, these santos are ready to fly high again!
SAN RAFAEL ARCANGEL (from Raphael, "God has healed") is depicted holding a fish in reference to his instruction to his young travelling companion, Tobias, to use the liver of a fish to cure his father's blindness. He is also depicted with a pilgrim's staff.
SAN VICENTE FERRER, was a famous Dominican preacher who converted thousands to Christianity in Spain due to his impassioned sermons. His attributes include a book, a trumpet and a flame on his head. As he emphasized penance to prepare men for judgment, he was also known as the "Angel of the Apocalypse", hence is shown winged.
ANGEL CUSTODIO, the Guardian Angel, a concept known as early as the 5th century, is traditionally depicted holding the hand of a child as a gesture of protection.
