Gorgeous Relicario presenting the acclaimed Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro (Endless Helper) with Baby Jesus. The relicario has an elaborated ring to hang from a cord. The images are covered with glass and were masterly painted in Mother of Pearl. It describes the Virgin wearing the crown of the Queen of Heavens and Baby Jesus in a green gown, both surrounded by their holy glow. The relicarios were used as devotional items to inspire and comfort believers. During the Colonial Era these lockets evolved into a unique genre of devotional jewelry and artistic expression.
