James Langley was commissioned by the Fraternity of St Peter to create a monumental altarpiece for Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary Chapel near Lincoln, Nebraska.  The painting is conceived as an integral element of the architectural expression and intended to depict the celebrated 1531 apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe to the Indian Juan Diego (1474–May 30, 1548).

Incorporating pictorial idioms stemming from the sixteenth century, Signum Magnum (the Great Sign) lifts the viewer into a timeless realm suffused with light and rhythmic movement. The angels in attendance represent humanity, who with Juan Diego are both receptive and enraptured by the "Woman Clothed in the Sun."

This drawing was selected by internationally renowned art historian Sister Wendy Beckett for inclusion in the Third Nationwide Juried Catholic Arts Exhibition at St Vincent College in Pennsylvania, 2010.
