SKU: 243892
Watching over their tiny son, Mary and Joseph smile as shepherds worship in the blue Andean night. Beneath, an Andean hat shop offers sombreros for sale. Alejandro Chávez portrays the scenes on two levels in three dimensions. This traditional diorama is known as a retablo; each figurine is modeled and painted by hand.

    For past two years have hosted a "Nativity Open House" with depictions from many countries/cultures. I especially like the cultural reference of the hat shop below. Just as many of us learn the story of room made for the Holy Family in the animal's shelter, this shows room made for the birth and adoration of Jesus where a family makes their livelihood.

    I now have three retablos and each is unique and beautiful. The workmanship is exquisite and I will enjoy displaying them at Christmas for many years.
