His face is oval, ivory white and pink in the flush of his cheeks; his eyes almond-shaped and brown; the straight nose; the mouth closed, very small and well modeled; the eyebrows are barely noticeable; The head is large in proportion to the body, apparently to indicate that it is a girl.
The lower part of the body is stored in a silver glass. The image is wrapped in linen interior tunics, on which a rich cloth dress is placed with an opening through which the hands come out and closed with a button at the top under the neck. The cloak or mantle of the Virgin is lit on the dress, which is very extended in front and has a cauda behind.
Her silk hair, superimposed on the gold of the sculpture, spreads over her shoulders, and is adorned with several nets of fine pearls and rich gold earrings with precious stones.
All the sacred Image rests on a glass of starry blue silver, and this, on a large base; The moon is gold with two stars at the tips and adorned with precious stones. On the stand there is a column that goes up to the head to hold an 18-centimeter gold crown, adorned with 196 precious stones; The same column that carries the crown, also holds two little angels with a ribbon that says: “Mater Inmaculata, Ora Pro Nobis”.
