"Table Top Art Gallery"

I gave this to my daughter as a gift. It is a lovely reminder of the many faces of November 2.

"Never gets old"

It's been prominently displayed for nearly 10 years and I still enjoy finding little nuances of the masks.

"Love this wood box filled with masks!"

We are so pleased with Alejandro Chavez's mask collection! We have collected many masks over the years (mostly on travels) and this was placed on a floating shelf and fits in well.

"my beautiful retablo"

I have always been fascinated with miniatures, almost no matter where they come from. This Carnival mask retablo is by far the best and most fascinating. Received it this week and haven't stopped looking at it yet. Thank you Alejandro.

Dear Alejandro Chavez, I look look look at my nativity scene. It is magical with the night sky and stars and all of the Christmas mystery wrapped in the dark blue box. I feel like a child when I enter it. Thank you so much, Joan winchell
