Our Lady of Socorro 

The Classic period Nuevomexicano santeros may never have painted this Marian devotion of Our Lady of Socorro, however, I wanted to pay homage to an encounter early Spanish-speaking settlers had with the native people of this area now known as Socorro, NM. The natives provided the travelers with food and water, which led to them naming the place socorro, Spanish for help.
