Turning Points

"While in the United States working in the cotton fields, I was moving from place to place when the car broke down and crashed into a light post. It struck me on the head and put me in very great danger far from my homeland and my family. I entrusted myself with all my heart to San Miguelito." Retablo of Senovio Trejo.  Undated.  Oil on metal. Dimensions unknown.
