Details

By Erika Ulloa, this enchanting nativity scene is set in the Peruvian highlands. Llamas kneel beside the manger where the tiny Christ child is laid upon colorful Andean weavings. The artisan crafts the wooden box to house this retablo, or diorama, and paints it in vivid colors. The figures are carefully modeled from clay and painted by hand.

"Christmas Joy Retablo"

I have purchased three Erika Uloa retablos over the years. They have all been lovely--detailed, beautifully painted, and imaginatively depicted. This was bought for a young friend, who was thrilled with it.

"This beautiful piece brings joy"

Lovely, absolutely lovely as always. I placed it on a small shelf on my wall so it would be enjoyed near a window, brightening up my breakfast area.

"Exquisite artistry"

The care with which the artist worked is so very evident in this piece. It is darkly comic, with a band of horned creatures playing a musical tune on various instruments. I love it
