"Charming Retablo"

This retablo is so beautifully made. Great detail in the animated faces and colorful costumes. The wooden case is pretty open or closed. Looks good in any room of the house. So happy with this retablo!

"Perfect gift for a professional mask maker"

I sent this as a birthday gift to a cherished friend who designs theater sets and costumes, including masks, and also collects them. Her reaction was honest delight with the retablo, so although I did not actually see it, I am happy to recommend it.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Jesus learned the art of retablo sculpture from Peruvian master artisan Joaquin Lopez de Antay. In turn, he has passed this knowledge to his wife, daughter and nephew who work alongside him in his family workshop. Retablos are one of the most popular Peruvian art forms. They recount the spirit and traditions of Andean culture in dynamic hand-modeled dioramas that capture the mundane and magical moments that define lives.
