Nativity retablo from Peru

This is a retablo from Peru with a herd of llamas in the lower section. The word “retablo” means a group of figurines depicting a scene or a story.

The Peruvian retablos are made of wood, hinges with small nails for the doors, and a form of “papier maché” and gesso for the figurines, but made with Andean raw materials. Each figurine is hand made and hand painted to minute details. In general, these retablos depict a religious scene, in this case a nativity scene.

Back in 1995 we made a Christmas card based on a llama poem by Ogden Nash:

The one-l lama, he’s a priest.
The two-l llama, he’s a beast.
I will bet a silk pajama
There isn’t any three-l lllama.

As you can see below, we decided to take it a step further:
