A brilliant painted wood box opens to reveal handcrafted masks. Used during the Carnival celebrations preceding Lent, they show an astonishing array of animals, human and fantasy faces. Alejandro Chávez displays them in a traditional diorama, known as a retablo; each figurine is modeled by hand.

    I have many retablos and this one is by far my favorite. I love the muted colors of it.

    I got this for the birthday of a grandson who collects masks. I hope that he is as pleased with it as I am.

    I like it but I thought I would be able to take the masks out of the box but they are attached. I was hoping to have more visibility of the masks.

    my beautiful retablo

    Posted by Laurel on Mar 4th 2017

    I have always been fascinated with miniatures, almost no matter where they come from. This Carnival mask retablo is by far the best and most fascinating. Received it this week and haven't stopped looking at it yet. Thank you Alejandro.

    We are so pleased with Alejandro Chavez's mask collection! We have collected many masks over the years (mostly on travels) and this was placed on a floating shelf and fits in well.
