Description

Bultos are a living tradition within the religious iconography of Spanish folk art. Sculptures of saints and other religious figures were an integral part of the Spanish colonization of the Americas. The tradition of wooden santo carving has been preserved as a folk art in parts of Mexico and Northern New Mexico.

Conservators Allison Herrera and Keith Bakker discuss bultos and bulto restoration techniques while referencing objects from the Museum's collection and other important examples in New Mexico.
