The Ysleta Virgin is a 25 feet tall mural painted twice (a second time after decay destroyed the Virgin’s face) situated across from the Ysleta Mission on Ysleta Pueblo, which is surrounded by El Paso, Texas.

One thought on “(Art) Ysleta Virgin by Mario Colín

  1. Thank you for continuing his memory and spreading the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the goddess of the night skies, to whom he was forever devoted. Long may Mario’s spirit and legacy endure.
