The Virgin of Guadalupe is the most popular and cultural image in Mexico; she is known as "The Queen of Mexico". Every December 12th a great celebration takes place in Mexico, when they commemorate the miraculous apparition of Virgin of Guadalupe to Juan Diego at the top of the Tepeyac hill, on the outskirts of Mexico City. Her image is displayed at the Basilica de Guadalupe, which is the catholic chapel most visited in Latin America and probably the second most visited shrine in the Catholic world, second only to St. Peter's in Rome (The Vatican).
I have always found her eyes to be very tender, loving and they inspire peace. This is not only a beautiful image, but the bright and unusual colours printed on the fabric of Juan Diego's cloak create art one can stare at for days.
