This unique Piece of Art is entirely crafted in Mexico by one of our artisans.
This Mexican Shrine with vibrant colours represents the 'Lonely Soul' suffering in purgatory.
In the most commonly known image of the 'lonely soul' , a woman is depicted as breaking free from her chains in a dungeon setting surrounded by flames, representing purgatory. She appears penitent and reverent, and her chains have been broken, an indication that, after her temporary suffering, she is destined for heaven.
Praying to the 'Anima Sola' is a tradition specially in Latin America and many ways unlike that of the more widespread cult if saints. In lieu of praying to a saint who then appeals to God, the Anima Sola represents souls in purgatory who require the assistance both of the living and the divine to ameliorate their sufferings in the afterlife.
A powerful piece and a great gift for yourself or someone special giving a blessed touch to your home.
There is a hanging hole on the back and this is entirely hand made in Mexico by our artist, ready to display in your home or to give as a beautiful gift.
