Sanctuario de Atotonilco

"A pilgrimage site to a small church known for its paintings by Miguel Antonio de Pocosangre (or so I have been told). Located near San Miguel de Allende and Delores Hidalgo in the state of Guanajuato.

Antonio de Pocosangre was a Mexican who learned his skills in 16th century European painting techniques without formal training."

The two week block of monsters in movie posters and pulp magazine covers begins next Sunday.
