A brilliant painted wood box opens to reveal handcrafted masks. Used during the Carnival celebrations preceeding Lent, they show an astonishing array of animals, human and fantasy faces. Alejandro Ch�vez displays them in a traditional diorama, known as a retablo; each figurine is modeled by hand.
It's been prominently displayed for nearly 10 years and I still enjoy finding little nuances of the masks.
This is a stunning piece of handicraft work. I enjoy the retablo very much.
Beautiful, colorful, exactly like the picture. Bigger then I expected. Very well built and so cool. Makes me happy just looking at it!
