"What are the dimensions of frame... of mirror?!"
Very sweet. I am going to use this in a family altar as it carries a wonderful energy. I am also very picky about quality and the little figures are made with excellent precision, good attention to detail not sloppy!...

Story Behind the Art:
Alejandro Chávez was born on January 30, 1956. He specializes in the creations of retablos, a kind of reverent diorama-altar typical of the Ayacucho region of Peru. He learned this technique as a boy in school, when he was 17 years old and living in Ayacucho, where his parents moved when he was just 2 years old. When Chávez returned to his hometown, he began working in the studio of Angel Castro, a master artisan. Here he refined his techniques in the creation of retablos, eagerly learning the art from his teacher. Later, Chávez formed his own workshop after the death of his teacher, continuing to give shape to this art form. The customs and traditions of the Andean people emerge in every piece.
In every one of my creations I hope you will be able to recognize my great love for this art form. You will also fine the contributions of my wife as well, for she molds the characters. I am currently teaching my nieces and nephews as well. I sincerely hope that you enjoy your retablo, which brings together the culture and traditions of the Andes.

I ordered this with 2 other Mirrors by the same artist. I love them. The detail is beautiful, the colors are beautiful. The detail on the sides is very nice too.I hung them in a long hallway on the wall. They remind me a little of religious fresco's in some churches I visited in Padua. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. I did not realize they were signed by the artist. That's an added bonus.Read More
