I love this Wooden Blue Nativity
The Retablo is so peaceful with the blue starry scene. The figures inside are colorful. I bought one several years ago, but gave it to my granddaughter who had lived in Peru for almost two years. Now I am buying one for myself.
Rustic, Simple & Beautiful!
This beautiful retablo is not too elaborate. I love the simplicity and the opaque colors. Makes me think of an old cherished heirloom that you could find in your grandmas house, antique shop or an old church. Even though its a Christmas scene, I have it displayed all year round. Why not?
this was bought for my granddaughter
its stunning,love the colours and the workmanship is wonderful.i would fully recommend this piece to anyone....
