Crafted from wood and painted by hand with colorful floral motifs, this traditional retablo from Peru is created by Julio Gallardo. Opening with brass hinges, the doors reveal an intricate composition that is diligently crafted from handmade ceramic. A skeleton proposes to his bride-to-be in the middle of a graveyard. A heart-shaped balloon reads Te amo (I love you) in Spanish, while tombstones carry other romantic messages.
