This Classic 19th century Mexican oil on tin retablo represents the 'Anima Sola.' The Anima Sola, for those who are unfamiliar, is a departed ancestral soul awaiting judgement in the flames of purgatory. The Anima Sola (Lonely Soul) may be invoked when a family member or loved one dies in sin or conversely, to send an enemy to a state of temporary suffering or misery in purgatory.
