The alter features acrylic and rust paint on a tin nicho with actual Mexican milagros (prayer pendants), copper wire features, brass skulls, fabric, beer cap and Charlie Patton collectors card photo.

"I chose the R. Crumb collector card image of Patton because it reminded me of Mexican prayer cards featuring paintings of saints."
