No - that is painted onto the rock. It's in Colorado somewhere. I forget the place...

There's this new-fangled interweb thingy.... Penitente Canyon

There is a painting of the Virgin Guadalupe part way up one of the rock faces - Virgin Wall. The sign by the picnic area says that it was painted somewhere between 1940 and 1980 (wide range) by 3 local men. Two of them signed the rock near the bottom and there's a faint inscription around the virgin saying "Consuelo y Espiritu" (Comfort and Courage). The locals have this story: "Around 1937, some members of the Penitente Brotherhood roped up and painted the Madonna on there on the wall." The devout artists sat in tires suspended by a cord, painting an image for its secretive followers.

Really, if it only it were that simple . . ..

Seriously there are a lot more factors than just that . . .
