St. Isidore the Laborer

Outdoor placard
Santa Fe Plaza, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Prepared for a religious festival in Santa Fe, this placard adds a rosary to the usual attributes of the saint – plough, oxen, angel, and typical garb. Relevance is further heightened by the inclusion of maize as the specific crop for which Isidore was plowing his field, even though he lived in Spain in the 12th century, when this American grain was unknown.
