Multicolor 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.
Skillfully carved, beautifully painted piece. I love the bright colors, and charming depictions of the Holy Family. Lovely addition to my nativity collection.
