Product Description

A wonderful addition to any collection, this fabulous nativity pairs gourd art with the ancient craft of retablo. Retablo begins with making a plaster out of potato starch. Each figure is then hand molded, dried and hand painted to give it a unique character. This retablo is then put inside a gourd that is dried, etched, and colored through the use of flame. 

Created by one of the many artisans being helped in the marginal districts and communities of Lima, Ayacucho, Huancayo, Cuzco, Puno, Arequipa and Piura. Ths cooperative works hard to market products outside Peru while keeping overhead costs low, giving the best possible outcome to the artisans. The members also benefit with health care, loan funds and advances, school supplies and books, training programs and technical assistance.
