Virgen de Guadalupe Contemporary Art

Every so often since this blog’s inception, I’ve gathered and posted contemporary versions of the Virgen de Guadalupe. These posts are consistently the most popular ones on my blog, so I’ve compiled all of the images on this page. To learn more about the images, click on the link preceding each set.

*Note: Some of the commenters on the previous threads have been offended by the images, while others have had the opposite reaction. I haven’t analyzed any of the images; how you wish to interpret them is up to you. 


If you have Virgen art you’d like to share, send it to thefeministtexican [at] gmail [dot] com.

    The labia one is beautiful, and what makes us women. However, I do agree with the Playboy one.
