    Story Behind the Art:
    Andean artisan Alejandro Chavez creates retablos, colorful dioramas unique to the Ayacucho region of Peru. Each tiny figure is shaped and painted by hand, and displayed in a delightful tableau. 'In every one of my works you can find the labors of my wife, who molds the characters, as well as that of my nieces and nephews, whom I currently teach,' he says. The customs and traditions of the Andean people emerge in every retablo.

    • Absolutely lovely!

      Had this out for the Christmas holidays and people just loved it. The figures are very pretty and the whole thing is so perfect and tiny. It tucks nicely into a small space and just glows with charm!
