* UNFRAMED ORIGINAL ACRYLIC PAINTING SIGNED BY ARTIST MARK CHURMS.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Franciscan Monks, local Native American Indians, rancheros with cattle and sheep populated the early Spannish colonial, Catholic Missions in California. Though many early Missions fell into disrepair in the 19th Century (some of the original buildings still survive or have been repaired) they gave their names to many of the west-coast cities and towns, so familiar to Americans today. Here we see candles and hides made from slaughtered beef cattle at the Mission.
