San Jacinto ("Saint Hyacinth")

Circa 17th century
Wood, stiffened cloth, gesso, paint
Church of San Pablo, Huitzo, Mexico

The saint wears the black and white habit of the Dominican order. Mostly undamaged, the santo has unfortunately lost the statue of the Madonna and Child that would have been on the stand in his left hand. In the right hand is a ciborium, in which he would have rescued the Eucharistic host when his chapel was under attack. In the context of the story a ciborium would be far more likely than a monstrance, which is what most images place in the saint's hand.
