Virgin Mary (Giclée fine art print)
This 8x10 giclée print on archival cold press paper comes in a simple 11x17 black frame with custom painted double mat. The photo was taken in 2011 on the Portuguese island of Faial, in the parish of Ribeirinha. In 1643, as recounted by friar Diogo das Chagas, the parish of Ribeirinha consisted of 71 homes and 254 inhabitants. A quarter of a century later, the Church of São Mateus da Ribeirinha was constructed, and would remain the center of religious life in the parish until the violent earthquake of July 9, 1998.
