Santo Domingo de Guzmán - Intramuros

Ivory image that was part of the original entourage for the famous La Naval de Manila procession in Intramuros.

 

The famous vestments, embroiedered in hilo de oro and finished in the difficult and expensive binanig style; the gold aureola done in the "sala-salamin" technique and encrusted with precious stones; the silver estandarte and the book with clasps & finials were kept in the vault of Santo Domingo and was thus spared the war.
