Special | 6m 3s | Video has closed captioning.

Some of the great cultural treasures of America reside in the ancient churches of New Mexico and in the collection of the New Mexico History Museum. Created by santeros, the classical santero tradition of carving and painting religious artworks was rooted in New Mexico for most of the 1800s when Roman Catholics commissioned these devoted carvers to sculpt a santo or saint.
