SKU: 61305
Diverse scenes representative of the Ayacucho region of Peru comprise this handcrafted retablo, a unique style of Andean folk art. The altar-like composition is divided into several shelves, populated by colorful figures and expressions of native customs. In the upper space, Alejandro Chavez recreates the birth of Jesus, as men and women dressed in traditional Peruvian attire look on proudly. The frame is made from wood, while the artist uses ceramic figures and vibrant paints to evoke the vast tapestry of human emotions.

    This piece is so big and is an amazing piece of artwork. I unpacked this well wrapped piece and just stared at all the work that has gone into making this piece. Every one of the dolls are handmade and have such character.
