Meet Lynn Garlick, retablo makerRetablo
LynnGarlick carving
   Lynn Garlick's workshop is located in the high desert town of Taos, New Mexico, a landscape richly steeped in religious iconography and history. The retablo, or ʻboard behind the altarʼ, was originally created in New Mexico in the 1800ʼs in response to the lack of Bibles and icons being sent from the church in Rome. The Santero (saint maker) painted retablos from pigment collected and ground from the local surroundings. The boards were hand-hewn usually of ponderosa pine with tin. The practice has carried down through the generations and is still done this way today.
Lynn Garlick

   Moved by the sacred art of the retablo paintings and the santeros (saint makers) who made them, Lynn Garlick started carving, painting, and producing her retablos in 1993.  She handcarves and paints her original designs on the traditionally used ponderosa pine planks. Then she decoupages high quality prints of her originals onto pine boards, in an old school technique used for the Italian altar screens of medieval Europe.

   As Lynn became more involved in her research of the saints' lives, she saw how deeply many people responded to them. "I felt a responsibility to make the painting a prayer for healing, kindness and right thought."

   "I feel so fortunate to do this art/business. The saints, angels and prayers have changed and blessed my life. My hope is that they touch and bless others as well."

   So much has happened this week including the KC Chief's first win of the season (woohoo!). Over several days we experienced a drop of almost 40 degrees as our first taste of fall arrived. Last weekend we were moved and inspired by the community creation of 6 "Black Lives Matters" murals on streets.  And, of course, with new merchandise arriving we just had to share it with you! 

   The arrival of Lynn Garlick's retablos got us all thinking about tiny little "gems" or treasures that each of us carry with us some times as good luck charms or as a blessing to encourage or calm us. Besides these new pocket retablos, we carry little Blessing Rings, tiny milagros, pocket hearts, and Worry Dolls. With the start of school for many and returning back to work places for some, what a wonderful time to choose some gems to share with those you love (including you!). The church Lonnie and I attend (now virtually) created new little "backpack blessings" for everyone in the congregation. Now attached to the bag I carry, it reminds me of the love of one of my communities that I carry with me each and every day.

  Have a wonderful weekend! We thank you for your continued shopping support. And I can't say it enough times - YOU are an important part of what makes World's Window so special! THANK YOU!
