The center is Our Lady of Guadalupe the patron saint of Mexico, I have had this fabric for a while and was waiting for a project. When I was a kid I would sit in mass and read all about the saints in the back of the missal. Most of them were being stoned to death or worse! I think I liked Our Lady of Guadalupe the best because her feast day is the day before my birthday.
The Indians worshipped the sun god. If the sun did not shine each day, they felt they had offended their god and would offer a human sacrifice, usually children. This shows that because she is surrounded by the sun, her God is more powerful.
Okay class is over for the day!
