We are just hours away from celebrating the Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe in honor of one of the most sacred figures in Mexico.

It is said that on December 12, 1531, she appeared to an indigenous man named Juan Diego on Tepeyac Hill, in the northern part of Mexico City.

Recently, the internet turned to artificial intelligence (AI) to depict what the face of the Virgin of Guadalupe might have looked like.

According to El Heraldo de México, the goal of using AI was to provide a more realistic image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.

Furthermore, it aims to identify her ethnic characteristics in contrast to the many paintings of her.

This project began with a detailed analysis of the image in the Basilica of Guadalupe.

A specialist from Anahuac Encyclopedia took the initiative to use artificial intelligence on The Patroness of Mexico.

The image respects her facial features

The person who created the image broke down and studied every feature of the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.

He created an image of her face that takes into account the ethnic characteristics of her place of origin.

The AI image of the Virgin respected the facial features of the original religious image.

Before anything else, the goal was to give it realism and avoid caricature-like interpretations, as is common these days.

The AI Virgin of Guadalupe is in the public domain

With more than 20,000 subscribers, Anahuac Encyclopedia’s YouTube channel shows the AI Virgin of Guadalupe.

“In this video, I explain the reasoning behind why I did it, as well as the legal and artistic aspects of this image that has gone viral not only in Mexico…”

To everyone’s surprise, he added that the image is free for anyone to use how they wish.

“I bring our ancient indigenous roots to light so that we can know where to walk,” said Ángel Omagna.

In another video available on Anahuac Encyclopedia’s YouTube channel, Ángel Omagna shows what the Virgin of Guadalupe would look like today.

The expert, once again using AI, presents how she would look with a modern hairstyle and clothing.

First of all, he wanted to make it clear that he was not seeking an accurate historical representation but an artistic and visual exploration.

“I make these videos with the aim of spreading the ancient history of Mexico,” commented the expert.
