Commissioned for a patronal festival in San Roque de Cumbaza Amazon Peru. The original icon was painted using pigments and natural pigments from the Cumbaza river. The figures were inspired by local Quechua people I saw on a visit to Lamas. Every sunday the woman and men perform a ritual in the plaza where they dance arm in arm. Here San Rocha gazes directly at you the viewer while San Roque looks beyond reminding us to remember the wider world. Both saints gently support symbols of nature. The colibri (hummingbird) a symbol for ancestors. A tree, a symbol for the gifts nature gives. On their arms are sores as San Roque is invoked against the plague. Behind the saints the hills of the San Martin the region where the Quechua live and high above them shines a star inspired by the Inca cross.
