SHOT 2/20/19 10:53:46 AM - A corner capilla hidden behind crates of fruit inside a fruit stand in the Mercado Municipal Lucas de Gálvez in Merida, Mexico. The capillas are often dedicated to certain patron saints, such as Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe. Our Lady of Guadalupe is a powerful and ubiquitous symbol of Mexican identity because some guess that Our Lady of Guadalupe's skin tone matches that of Mexico's indigenous population: light brown. She is as much revered for her striking similarity to the vanquished native Mexican population as she is for being the mother of God. Often times they contain prayer candles, pictures, personal artifacts or notes. Mérida is the capital and largest city in Yucatan state in Mexico, as well as the largest city of the Yucatán Peninsula. As the largest city in the Yucatan it has become a hub for commerce and culture. (Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2019)
