In this painting Our Lady or Perpetual Help is exquisitely depicted.
Her head surrounded by a golden halo and she is regally dressed in blue, red and gold. She tenderly holds the divind Child Jesus.
She is an image of religious devotion as she beholds her faithful devotees.
Details are exquisitely embellished with golden leaf.
This addition of stenciled or painted gold leaf onto oil paintings is called, as it was in early contracts, brocateado.
It is also sometimes termed sobredorado (overgilding) and has also been described as escarchado.
Look at the exquisite facial features and the color composition, it is just simply amazing.
