Archangel Gabriel/ San Gabriel

In my research I did not find any retablos of San Gabriel. Looking at the characteristics of the santero painters, I created this interpretation of San Gabriel, inserting the two symbols from the Annunciation, the lily and the Ave.
The Annunciation: Luke 1:26-38            

                                                                 Have no fear
                                                                God is with you
