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.
