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.

  • Got the blues...

    I gave my rotablo as a gift. I think it is lovely, but I found it to be very dark, darker than it looked in the picture. It's obviously handcrafted and very Peruvian. That was its strong appeal. It took quite a while to get it sent, but I knew that when I ordered. I have really fallen in like with overstock.com. (:

  • Folk Art Nativity Set

    This was a beautiful handcrafted piece of high quality. The idea of embedding the figures in the long blue box makes it easy to ship and to store. I bought it as a gift for my friend, who collects nativity sets, and she was thrilled with it. It took a little longer to get this item, but it was worth the wait. I have ordered several items from Worldstock, and have always been satisfied.
