Says Peruvian artist Julio Gallardo, "I love the type of work that I do, since it allows me to form whatever scene, thought, or idea in a wood box and deepen the significance of each detail." He handcrafts this retablo of local tornillo wood, featuring two swinging doors that are painted by hand with a floral design. These doors open to an enchanted world, depicting a group of hat salesmen in their tienda de sombreros, surrounded by a variety of colorful hats. Each miniscule piece in this retablo is crafted and painted by hand, reflecting Peru's rich tradition in head wear. Gallardo draws inspiration from the traditional dances of Peru, where dancers wear colorful hats that convey their emotion.
Arrived promptly, beautifully wrapped, with a message from the artist. These little retablos are charming pieces of art. The quick delivery was very impressive. Thank you.
