Featured Reviews on Peruvian Retablos
After I saw the Peruvian film Retablo on Netflix with its scenes showing the craftsmanship that goes in to these captivating pieces, I was excited to see retablos from Peru on Novica. The colors are so deep, and I admire the work done in creating each miniature mask.
an addition to my wife s nativity collection
Was given to my wife for a Christmas present. She happily added this to her varied and growing Nativity Collection. Well made. I was happy with this purchase and recommend it to others.
Rustic, Simple & Beautiful!
This beautiful retablo is not too elaborate. I love the simplicity and the opaque colors. Makes me think of an old cherished heirloom that you could find in your grandmas house, antique shop or an old church. Even though its a Christmas scene, I have it displayed all year round. Why not?
