SHOT 2/22/19 11:46:02 AM - Rosary beads hang from a statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe inside an all-glass capilla in the small town of Loché in the the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Our Lady of Guadalupe is a powerful and ubiquitous symbol of Mexican identity because some guess that Our Lady of Guadalupe's skin tone matches that of Mexico's indigenous population: light brown. She is as much revered for her striking similarity to the vanquished native Mexican population as she is for being the mother of God. The capillas are often dedicated to certain patron saints or the memory of someone that has died at or near the site. Common throughout the backroads and secondary highways of Mexico they often contain prayer candles, pictures, personal artifacts or handwritten notes. (Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2019)
