A photographic record of the women encountered by Deborah Turbeveille on a tour of Guatemala. At the beginning of the trip Turbeville puchased a worn, naive statue of the Virgin Mary and Child from a small antique shop in Panachal. The statue was bundled up and became Turbeville's travelling companion. The women of the villages and towns are photographed through the eyes of the Virgin Maria Candelaria.
