The indigenous folk-art of the New Mexican Santero has been the subject of numerous scholarly texts and publications. This subject has been studied and written about in varying facets from its religious implications to its artistic contributions. This is the first book written on the subject by a carver of Santos, Eluid Levi Marintez. Martinez' grandfather, José Dolores Lopez, and uncle, George Lopez, are widely recognized for their carvings of santos and religious figures.
