Folk Art Wood 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 little porcupine is beautifully done. Well made and painted very well with great colors! Love it!!!
"In every one of my creations I hope you will be able to recognize my great love for this art form."
