Mission San Xavier del Bac - Funeral Chapel

Painted Pine and 22K Gold Leaf.

7" x 9" x 14"

This beautiful little chapel to the west of the church seems to have been built around the same time as the church itself, 1783 and 1797.  It is like the handsome cousin of the main church and serves in the funerals of the faithful and adjoins a large cemetery that is still in use today.
