Earthtone Ceramic Sculpture
I bought the first one for myself as a confirmation gift because one of our Deacons, in a class for new Catholics, said every Catholic home must have a few things - one of them was a statue or photo or painting, etc., of our Blessed Mother Mary. I bought the second for a woman in my Bible study, who is from Peru and just moved into a new home. I bought the third one for my sister, because when she saw a photo of mine, she fell in love with it - not for the religious appeal, but from a folk art perspective - and after looking at many online, I can't agree more. I watched the video of how the artisan makes the retablo and it added even greater value to it. I simply love them. I love the scene behind Mary - the high mountains, and the flowers, in a wooden box with doors. I mounted mine on a wall in my home office and see it from where I sit. I'm buying the next one as a thank you gift for a close friend who I will be visiting in a few weeks.
This is a beautiful and very nicely crafted sculpture for home display. It is quite obvious this artisan has highly refined skills through years of experience, and takes great pride in sharing his heritage and handiwork. I enjoy looking at it every day in my study, alongside a companion piece.

Highly innovative, quality Nativity. The workmanship is superior and the item reflects the creatorâ€™s sense of humor! Love the item. Have purchased a total of six (6) of them.
