With song, dance and fun, a custom called Yunza takes place in Ayacucho and other parts of Peru. Presents are hung on a tree and a party ensues beneath its branches. At the end of the festivities, the tree comes down and everyone gets a gift. Alejandro Chavez crafts a wooden box to house this retablo, or diorama and paints it in bright colors. The figures are carefully modeled from ceramic plaster and painted by hand. Displayed on a table or shelf, or hung on the wall, it brings Andean spirit to any setting.

I have ordered several items from this artist; his retablos are out of this world beautiful!


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
