Beautiful work of art and inspiration
This piece exceeded my expectations. It is beautiful; great attention to detail and the colors are vibrant. It is inspiring!
Beautiful Creche Retablo
This is a very detailed, beautiful retablo rendition of the nativity story with colorful details from S. American culture. It has been displayed many times at the annual Christmas Creche Exhibit held every year in Palo Alto, CA. I am proud to have it as part of my nativity collection.
A Gift befitting art collectors
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.
