A sumptuous full-color study of devotional art. Renowned folklorist James S. Griffith teams up with Mexican scholar Francisco Javier Manzo Taylor to celebrate the compelling images of Christ found in churches, chapels, roadside shrines, and personal altars throughout the border state of Sonora, Mexico. Told in warm, informal stories and pictures, The Face of Christ in Sonora captures the essence of these works of powerful popular art. It also examines their place in history, explains how individual pieces came to be made, and reveals how devotional art expresses the inspiration, belief, perseverance, and survival of a culture. This is more than art, says Manzo Taylor. It's more than religion. It's people. 32 color photos.
