 In the future I will be be more systematic at asking the artist I bought the Santo from the name of the saint and writing the name down. I have found the two books below useful references on Guatemalan Santos and Folk Saints.

1- "The Santos of Guatemala, Volume I, English Edition", Tony Pasinski. Didacsa, Centro Cientifico Culture, 1997 (out of print) --- This is the best resource I have found to help identify Guatemala Saints based on dress, attributes and objects associated with the Saint. As Pasinski notes "We will not be able to determine the name of every saint we see. Guatemalan artists, our untrained eye, or lack of knowledge, and time itself have made the job of identification of many saints difficult". 

2 - "Guatemala's Folk Saints: Maximon/San Simon, Rey Pascual, Judas, Lucifer and others." Jim Pieper, 2002, Distributed by the University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque.
