The Sacred Heart of Jesus

18th century (est.)
Mission San Juan Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano, California

In some ways this santo departs from the traditional iconography. The face is different. The robe does not reach the feet, and it is the color of Franciscan habits, though without a cowl. But most of the features of this iconographic type are in evidence: the flaming heart encircled by thorns and framed by a sunburst, the nail-marks on the hands, the bare feet, and the way the mantle hangs from just one shoulder.
