Family Painting

My great grandmother and great grandfather’s family immigrated from Spain, hundreds of years ago to Northern New Mexico. 
My grandpa was the oldest of their children. And my mother was the oldest grandchild. My great-grandma had this picture on the wall and my mom was always curious about what it could be. Her grandma said it was a guardian angel watching over two children. It was the same picture that appeared on her prayer card. Also, this picture was in my great grandpa's wallet in World War II. My great-grandma told my mom that she would always have a guardian angel watching over her and her family. The picture is very meaningful to my mother. This picture is also on my great grandparent's funeral mass prayer cards.
