Our Lady of Guadalupe, also known as the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared four times before Juan Diego in Tepeyac, Mexico in 1531: the last of these apparitions was on December 12, a date still observed today 450 years later. Our Lady of Guadalupe’s apparition is entrenched in Mexican culture and the Mexican identity.

This piece was handmade by our artisans, designed by Margarita Llort. The decorative piece stays true to the Mexican identity while also bringing a new perspective through the glass medium. 

Margarita Llort displayed a strong interest in the plastic arts from a young age but began working with glass in 1982 after being introduced to modern glass art techniques. She has since travelled several times to cities such as Barcelona, Chicago, California, and Orlando to improve her skills, culminating in the creation of Vitrales de El Salvador in 2003 with her son Miguel Saade. Margarita and her team of glass artisans are now El Salvador’s de facto glass artists, and her work can be found behind the altars of churches across the region, as well as in homes either as architectural features (in doors and windows) or as colorful decorative pieces. 

Margarita Llort and her cousin Fernando Llort, one of El Salvador’s most influential artists, devised an unprecedented initiative in which many of Fernando’s works have been displayed in glass by Margarita and her team at Vitrales.
