Peru's Alejandro Chavez depicts colorful scenes from his native Peru in this retablo. Made of plywood and ceramics with a square mirror in the center, this handcrafted diorama makes a striking accent piece.

Product Features:
  • People from the Andean highlands harvest prickly pear, sell hats, dance and adore the Christ child
  • Ceramic figurines are shaped and painted by hand, and displayed in a plywood box
  • Signed by the artist
  • Mirror measures 4.5 inches square
  • Measures 6.5 inches high x 6.45 inches wide x 1.18 inches deep when open
  • Measures 6.5 inches high x 6.1 inches wide x 2.6 inches deep when closed

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.
