Details

Colorful doors open on to the Chapel of Santa Ana, where expressive figures celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Alejandro Chavez portrays his characters in traditional Andean attire, as a sense of divine luminosity gracefully descends upon the scene. This form of Peruvian folk art is known as the retablo, especially characteristic of the Ayacucho region. The wooden frame is crafted by hand, while the artisan fills the shelves with tiny ceramic figures painted to joyous perfection.

"Beautiful"

THis adds a splash of color to my nativity scene, and I love it because it is different than the standard scene set up.

"Beautiful Piece"

We loved our time in Peru we wanted more of their art and culture in our house. My wife loves how beautiful it is and how well made it is (we have very little kids).

Dear Alejandro Chavez, I look look look at my nativity scene. It is magical with the night sky and stars and all of the Christmas mystery wrapped in the dark blue box. I feel like a child when I enter it. Thank you so much, Joan winchell
