Details

Located in the center of Peru, Tarma is a village known for its music and dance traditions. Among these traditions, Huayno is a distinctive dance performed by a man and a woman, characterized by agile stomping of the feet. Artisan Erika Ulloa pays homage to this dance, combining it with a traditional nativity scene. Handcrafted of ceramic and painted by hand, the intricate figures of the dancers perform around baby Jesus, accompanied by a band of woodwind and string instrumentalists.

"Exquisite artistry"

The care with which the artist worked is so very evident in this piece. It is darkly comic, with a band of horned creatures playing a musical tune on various instruments. I love it

"A Gift befitting art collectors"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My sister and her husband are serious collectors. I gave this the retablo to them as a birthday present and they could not be more thrilled. The detail, color and design are unparalleled. I hope to gift them with another one in the future.
