In the morning of December 9th, 1531, at the top of the Tepeyac, the Guadalupana, the Mother of all Mexicans, appeared for the first time In front of Juan Diego, a Macehual indian. In prehiapanic times, the Aztecs workshiped the goddness Teotenantzin (the mother of the gods) or Cihuapilli Tonantzin (noble little indian, our mother) in the old temple located int he Tepeyac. The appearances of the virgin in México started 10 years after the fall and conquest of Tennochtitlan; in the midst of a shining whiteness a lady very similar to the one that can one be seen in its blessed image, brought her precious and holy will and message to the Zumarraga Bishop. The desing in silk is based on the appearances of the Our Lady of Guadalupe int he Tepeyac hill. Sourrounding the main image of the Guadalupana are represented the four appearances od the Virgin to Juan Diego, the smallest of her sons. The celebration of this miracle is on December 12th; the desing was inspired on a 17th century altar piece.
