Story Behind the Art:
Andean artisan Alejandro Chavez creates retablos, or colorful dioramas unique to the Ayacucho region of Peru. Each tiny figure is shaped and painted by hand, and displayed in a delightful tableau. While working with a master artisan, Chavez refined his techniques. '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.

If you're a traveler who collects masks, this makes a nice addition to your mask wall. It's small, so don't expect it to be a functional wall mirror, just a witty little accent piece. Handmade look, therefore not flawless painting, but that's what you want.Read More
I really love this. It took a long time to arrive, and it seemed pretty small until I put it on the wall-- then it seemed like the perfect size. It looks fantastic in an eclectic wall grouping. . . commands attention, but not too much. Love it. Signed by the artist on the back.Read More
