Beautiful Creche Retablo
This is a very detailed, beautiful retablo rendition of the nativity story with colorful details from S. American culture. It has been displayed many times at the annual Christmas Creche Exhibit held every year in Palo Alto, CA. I am proud to have it as part of my nativity collection.
So so nice
I absolutely love this small work of art. It came quickly and is beautiful. I love the colors and the details. You can tell it was made by hand by an artist.
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?
