This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

A retablo depicts the 'yawar' fiesta with a condor for the people of Peru and a bull for the Spanish, each image modeled and painted by hand. If the condor flies, this augurs a good harvest, and musicians play in Alejandro Chavez's diorama, or retablo.

  • Materials: Plywood, ceramic
  • Signed by the artist
  • Dimensions: 12 inches high x 7.3 inches wide x 2.8 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.
