Virgenes is a patchwork with a funny motif of Virgen de Guadalupe, and this another very important symbol that occupies a special place in Mexican culture. Mexicans believe that Our Lady of Guadalupe works miracles. It is very common that people they ask for a lot of favors and healings from her, having a very personal attitude towards the saint. Reproduction and use of her image is not sinful, it rather indicates worshiping the Mother of God.
As in our patchwork, where the innocent Virgin appears, her image is placed on tiles in different-colored backgrounds and brings to mind pop artworks of Andy Warhol.
Talavera Virgenes tiles are hand made by craftsmen in Mexico.
Tile arrangement simulator They are not perfectly identical and that is their charm. The enamel can bear the marks of small cracks formed during firing, and the patterns may differ slightly because they are all painted by hand.
The tiles are resistant to abrasion and even with deeper scratches the pattern is still visible, as the individual colors are contained in the glazing. Each tile is first covered with a primer - the base color, and then each pattern color is applied separately. After firing, the tiles get their final colors as well as extraordinary resistance.
