Peruvian Multicolor Folk Art Sculpture
By Mary Ruth
A true artisan, Julio Gallardo's imagination, flair and technical skill bring the return of the dead to life. Expression, gesture and color capture the celebration night and a slice of Peruvian tradition and culture.
This is a wonderful retablo with obvious craftsmanship both inside and out , lots of detail and it showcases Julio's obvious pride in his work.The subject matter also makes it an unusual piece for my collection.
This is a wonderful story of the people in a miniature way. The many aspects of the community that are livelihood are represented. I love this retablo.
"In every one of my creations I hope you will be able to recognize my great love for this art form."
