virgen  1 Cuba’s patron saint appeared to three fishermen at sea during a life-threatening storm. She protects them by calming the sea. This powerful legend surely encourages “balseros” (raft refugees) to take their chances as they flee the island. I symbolize the virgin as a triangular form, a protective force that is sometimes not present.
