St. Nicholas Factor

19th Century
Boggsville Historic Site, Las Animas, New Mexico/Colorado

The skull is Nicholas Factor's attribute. The three tufts of hair surrounding his tonsure are also seen in this statue of the saint in Oaxaca. Many images give the saint the same high, round collar and full sleeves seen here.

This is one of a number of religious works that Ramalda Luna Boggs collected in the 19th century for the Boggs home in Las Animas, which was then a part of New Mexico but is now in Colorado.
