Since the representation of Virgin of Cocharcas was inspired in the Virgin of the Candlemas, numerous paintings of them should all have included a candle alluding to the ones lit the day of the presentation in the temple. However, roses were changed for the candles, causing these representations to lose their classic attribute and even their original title of Candlemas.
The altarpiece pictured here is a sort of portable altar, where the popular sentiments are the essence. It moves away from classical and well achieved forms to give to irregular and disproportionate figures, even in their structural forms. However, they are protrayed with brightness or effects in which the light of the baroque is still latent.
