This Vintage Mexican Retablo of San Ramon Nonato in his Mercedarian cardinal robes has been painted on a 13.75" high by 9.5" wide piece of tin.  He has his personal attributes: the palm with 3 crowns (symbols of chastity, eloquence, and martyrdom), a monstrance (pointing to his taking of communion from an angel before death), and padlocked lips (the torture he endured for converting others to Christianity).  His name "nonato," meaning "not born," refers to his Caesarean birth.  He is the patron saint of midwives, women giving birth, and those falsely accused and imprisoned.  He is also sought out to silence gossip.  The artist and the exact age of the work are unknown. This Vintage Mexican Retablo of San Ramon Nonato is in good condition.  There is some surface wear to the paint, two missing corners, and a small hole on each of the four edges.
