    • Materials: Plywood, ceramic
    • Signed by the artist
    • Open dimensions: 9.5 inches high x 11.5 inches wide x 3.3 inches deep
    • Closed dimensions: 9.5 inches high x 5.5 inches wide x 3.5 inches deep

    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.

      This works for my purposes, and I have received several compliments on it...but I do think it is a bit pricey for what it is...

      Very beautiful religious art piece. This is my first retablo and I love every detail, color and the box itself is well made. So beautiful that it made me start a retablo collection. She looks very peaceful and loving. This art piece is a miracle!

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        I love hand made items, they seem so much more special and unique to me. Especially of the Virgen Mary, she is sacred and deserving of a special place to be. The box makes it seems like she is protected inside and the colors are are just brilliant and radiant. I would have ordered one more but it wouldn't let me. I'm going to sacrifice my two items as gifts but I really wanted one too. Hopefully more will be made so that I can purchase one for my own. Have a blessed day and thank you.
