Virgen Dela Soledad Images (Soledad Series - Part 4)

September 24b, 2008

In the photo, you can see two religious icons, first is a cross and a Frame with a Soledad Image. The cross is the Santa Cruz de Bauan owned by Brother Randy Del Mundo. It is a beautiful metallic cross that symbolizes God. In the front is the Virgen dela Soledad de Malabon or Our Lady of Soledad de Malabon because it's owner, Sister Josie Olimpo, lives here at General Trias Town Proper also known as Malabon. It is said that this image of the Virgin is almost 100 years old and its sequences are made up of pure gold and that explains why it is enclosed in this glass altar.

This image of Virgen dela Soledad was an heir of the late Isidro and Gloria Fabella. It shows the sorrowful Virgin Mary dressed somewhat like beautiful nun with a cape as beautiful as the flowers below her altar.

Hello Steven!

Sorry I haven't been by in a while, I've enjoyed catching up with all your fantastic photos. The figures etc with all the gold are very nice.

I like the 2nd image very much! It looks so naïve, the pattern and colors of the outfit are great!
