Peruvian artisan Alejandro Chavez specializes in the creations of retablos, a kind of reverent diorama-altar unique to the Ayacucho region of Peru. He learned this technique as a boy in school, when he was 17 years old and living in Ayacucho. The customs and traditions of the Andean people emerge in every piece. Today Chavez is part of an association of artisans who participate in national artesania fairs. Chavez tells us that, '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. I sincerely hope that you enjoy your retablo which brings together the culture and traditions of the Andes.'

This hangs in my kitchen/dining area and although designed with a nativity scene it is too beautiful to put away after the season. I enjoy it all year long.Read More
I have a small collection of Mexican art and this fits right in and brings a special flair of it's own. Love the bright cheerful colors and figures , masks and other elements are very cool. Looking at it is like taking a mini vacation and entering the day of a life in Peru. Thanks O for this adorable Ayacucho.Read More
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
