NEW Gigante Retablos

These spectacular piece of folk art are the original creation of Mexico City artist Rafael Rodriguez. He carves and makes many of the furniture and mini elements inside these beautifully handcrafted retablos. Scenes are extremely well detailed and are a showcase piece for any collector, restaurant or museum. These diorama type retablo scene boxes were first made by 19th-century resident nuns in the Santa Monica convent in Puebla. Wood with glass. Because of the fragility of these pieces, they should be picked up at our warehouse. Please contact us for details.

It's rare to find a papier mâché piece as good as these! One of my favorites! The pieces are over 2 feet tall and command a room with excitement, color & classic Mexico "tipico".

Everyone's heard of the Mexican Hat Dance, but the real name of the national dance of Mexico is called the Jarabe Tapatio, which originated in the state of Jalisco. After the Revolution in 1921, a group of nation builders and in particular Jose Vasconcellos, instituted many ideas to create "National Identity" for their war torn country. They decided this dance would be learned by school children all over Mexico. This iconic image of a beautiful woman dancing in a full dance skirt has been immortalized on labels, neon Mexican restaurant signs, cigar boxes, text books, travel posters and a myriad of items.

This beautiful set of papier mache skeletons reflect the nostalgia for Revolutionary times in skeleton form. The pieces are sold separately so you can buy just the woman if you like. A great piece for any collection or ofrenda. If you have a couple color preferences, mention it in the ORDER NOTES upon checkout.
