18th Century Style Infant Jesus
Terry Nelson 2012
Acrylic on panel.
This is how the Nino looks in the nicho
I made it for. A nicho is a small shrine,
often made of tin, as is this one.
I added a LED candle just to see how it looks lighted.
The candle is too big of course.
I intend to copper leaf the floor of the nicho
to help reflect light. Then I will add a couple of vials
of dirt from Chimayo, New Mexico.
