Celestial scenes inhabit the upper composition of this altar, as figures in traditional Andean attire celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ beneath a rich, floral canopy. This form of Peruvian folk art is known as the retablo, especially characteristic of the Ayacucho region. The frame is crafted by hand from wood, while Alejandro Chávez fills the shelves with tiny ceramic characters painted to joyous perfection.
This item is colorful and such a perfect example of the work we have come to love over the years from this wonderful country and its artisans. Perfect for my collection and would make a wonderful gift. Sharing the incarnation of Christ as well as a great story of this craft.
