"Museo de Santos y su Colección" documents the efforts and achievements of a group of sculptural art lovers who organize themselves to save, conserve, and promote the oldest example of Puerto Rican cultural heritage: its palo santos. He presents us with the beautiful images that they were kind enough to obtain and preserve in their collection of popular Puerto Rican imagery for the enjoyment of future generations.
Through these pages, we are told the development of the group's efforts to establish a museum to preserve, restore, study and promulgate this example of Creole art until sadly reaching the decline of its existence due to the narrow-mindedness of people involved in the partisan politics superimposing this on the custodian of the sculptural heritage.
