A clever and colorful picture frame crafted by the hands of Alejandro Chavez. He employs the time-honored techniques used to create his retablo altars, constructing the frame in wood and filling its shelves with molded ceramic plaster figures. Varied scenes represent the energy of Carnavalito (literally 'Little Carnival'), a regional celebration held in the Peruvian Andes. Musicians play upon their native instruments, participants reenact the birth of Jesus, incredible masks hang upon the wall, and a couple stands beneath a towering prickly pear cactus. Painted in vivid hues and finished in a lustrous varnish, this piece lends distinctive spirit to any d√©cor.
