I recently found a book of paintings of Jerry West, this painting, The Corn Mother reminds me of a story I heard in SMA. The Spanish missionaries came to a small village and the women of the village took immediately to the new religion. They prayed daily in front of the local statue of the Virgin Mary. It was discovered later that a small corn Goddess lay within the statue...they had continued to pray to their own, familiar Goddess.
