Religious Surrealist Painting of Jesus and Mary from Peru, "Virgin of Perpetual Help"$419.99
This image of Mary is known as the Virgin of Perpetual Help. Combining Byzantine iconography with the style of the Cuzco School, Peruvian artist Jose Ponce de Leon paints a truly stunning composition of Mary as she holds baby Jesus, flanked by two angels.

Brazilian Fine Art Surreal Landscape Painting, "Portal Between Worlds"$534.99
Curvilinear shapes swirl across this canvas in frank abstraction. Yet, in the center of the painting, a realistic landscape appears beneath a yellow sky. Just below the roiling clouds, rugged peaks thrust upward and a narrow path winds through verdant pastures. "When the portal between worlds opens, we liberate the emotions. At that exact moment, we no longer have control because the dimensional veil between the worlds is removed. It alters our perceptions," artist Mendes Ferreira explains. This work forms part of his series "Windows of the Soul."
Titled "Portal entre os mundos" in Portuguese.
Architectural Realist Painting, "Wall"$1,297.99
"Silent witness to a colonial city that has seen magical and legendary characters pass by; it has resisted modernization and the passing of time," so Mario Sergio Avilés describes a random wall. His brushwork is as lyrical as his prose as he paints the wall that was built with adobe and bricks, and painted many, many times. Lush green leaves curl atop the iron bars protecting the wooden window doors in this admirable oil on canvas.
Titled "Muro" in Spanish.
