Peruvian retablo tradition brings you this wonderful little nativity. Handmade in ceramic, it fits inside the shell of a beautifully painted egg. Retablos, or image boxes, portraying scenes of faith and daily life, were originally brought to Peru from Spain. These retablos join this centuries-long art form. Decorative only. Keep out of reach of children.
HANDCRAFTED IN PERU
Deep and lasting relationships are essential to this family-run business, whose name means "hands joined in friendship." They bring the wares of 60 workshops across Peru - gourd carvers, ceramicists, jewelry makers and reverse-painted glass artisans - to market. They create a variety of exquisite handicrafts that tell stories of tradition and resilience. "I want to keep going, keep working to get ahead. My work is a happiness." - Eulogio Medina
