    Peru's Alejandro Chavez conveys Andean beliefs in the art of this nativity scene. Made of plywood and ceramics, this handcrafted diorama makes a striking holiday accent piece.

    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.

    A charmingly vibrant Nativity scene with Mary, Joseph and Jesus. The figures are not in proportion as they relate to each other, but it doesn't matter. The halos and stars announce how special this night was., I hope to find more of these over time and add them to my collection - I have three now!
