Beautifully handcrafted and keeping the tradition alive as part of Peruvian folk art, our artisans created portables retablos (dioramas) made of wood and ceramic. Very popular craft that make excellent gifts, especially for Christmas with the nativity theme.
Retablos are essentially a handcrafted and hand painted wooden box fitted with two doors on simple hinges with clay paste figurines depicting a religious theme usually the nativity and scenes from Peruvian every day life. In the case of retablos with two or more levels, the religious scene will always be on the upper level and the lower levels will showcase the boundaries of the mundane world.
Color variation and small imperfections are natural in handmade items.
