Nativity Ornament Retablo Etched Gourd


Retablos, or image boxes, were originally brought to Peru from Spain, and portrayed scenes of faith and daily life. These retablos join this centuries-long art form. Tiny figurines are hand molded from plaster paste. "Boxes" vary from whitewashed wood to dried out gourds or delicately emptied eggshells - each one covered with intricate, colorful freehand designs.
