Religious Painting of Isabel Flores de Oliva
Pictorial portrait of the Peruvian Christian mystic, represented with the characteristic black and white habit of the Third Order of the Dominicans (Order of Preachers) which he wore despite living in his own home. She was proclaimed Patroness of Peru in 1669 and of the New World and the Philippines in 1670, becoming canonized by Pope Clement X in 1671, making her the first of the saints of the ancient West Indies to receive this recognition from the Catholic Church. . Her devotion was such that she only allowed herself to sleep a couple of hours a day to dedicate the rest of the time to prayer. On her head rests the crown of roses and thorns that she used to symbolize the Crown of Thorns that the Roman soldiers placed on Jesus during her Passion.
