Peru's Quipac draws inspiration from the Niño de Praga, known in English as 'Infant Jesus of Prague.' An ornate wood statue, Infant Jesus of Prague is a Catholic icon recreated around the world. Quipac hand-paints a small composition to capture the majesty of the statue. He uses oils and acrylics on canvas, housed behind a protective acrylic pane in a reliquary that centers a length of foxtail chain. The artisan takes great care in creating this accessory, protecting the small painting within a sterling silver frame. Santa Teresa of Lima is said to have owned such a reliquary.
