During the Todos Santos Music Festival of 2016 in January, many of the musicians that played in the festival participated in the “Paint a Saint” project to raise funds for the Palapa Society “Beca” scholarship program. Each musician was given a carved wooden saint statue to paint/decorate. The Palapa Society held live auctions each night of the festival of these painted saints. The auctions were a huge hit, so it was decided to make this special auction of the painted saint by John Paul Jones available to everyone through an online auction.
This Painted Saint is 29″h x 8″w x 8″d.
John Paul Jones was the bassist, keyboardist, and co-songwriter for the English rock band Led Zeppelin.
John Paul’s painted saint was inspired during the Music Festival in January when he played live onstage with the popular La Santa Cecilia, the Mexican-American band based in Los Angeles, California. Watch the video at the top of this page of that inspirational performance.
The name La Santa Cecilia is based upon the patron saint of musicians, Saint Cecilia.
