Colorful wood doors open onto the shop where traditional shamans and folk healers dispense remedies for body and soul. Animal skins on the wall suggest an Amazon setting in this Andean retablo, or diorama. Skulls and lucky horseshoes mingle with aloe plants, bowls and bottles as a woman receives a cleansing with water poured onto her head. Working in ceramic, Julio Gallardo shapes each figurine by hand to populate this busy scene.
