HUAMANGA STONE CARVINGS

Museo Pedro de Osma

During the height of Huamanga stone carving there was a profusion of religious topics. 

Of note among the Huamanga stone religious pieces in the Pedro de Osma collection is an eighteenth century set depicting the life of the Virgin, which has remnants of its original paint.

The one pictured here, like others in the collection, must have been part of a larger series. In this case, it continues spreading the Marian theme.

Only for enrichment purposes, simple applications of gold are used in this scene of the Coronation of the Virgin.

Here Christ appears in a symbolic theme of the Passion cycle -the Mystic Press-, which was popular throughout the Americas.

The origin of the iconography meaning the Source of Life is found in sixteenth-century religious literature, although it has medieval antecedents.
