03. San Simone (4' x 6') NFS

I found San Simone in a rural hut in Guatemala,where people told me he was the common people's patron saint because he was once excommunicated from the Catholic church. They said they fed him alcohol and cigars so he would help them. He was a mannequin with hat and colorful scarves that people would wear while visiting. There were chickens and candles. Local shaman told fortunes with the chicken eggs and cards.
