Hand Carved And Painted Retablo Home Decor Sculpture.
I bought this unusual Retablo at an Estate Sale. It is from Cusco Peru. I was most impressed with the frames until I learned the history of Retablos. They are also known as Remodeles.

⭐THE RETABLO STORY: A retablo is a devotional painting, especially small popular or folk art using iconography derived from traditional Catholic church art. Retablos are important to many Christian Religions because they are a physical representation of holy images such as Christ, the Virgin Mother, or one of the many saints. During the 1940s, a resurgence of the art began in Peru.
⭐WOMEN FOUNDED: MolaMagic was envisioned by Janet Marie Brockman with the mission to empower the Indigenous Women of Color by helping them reach a global market for their handmade products. For the past twenty years all sales revenues have been reinvested into the artisan community of Panama. This includes education, medical care, land purchase, tools, and other needs.
