Retablos are true Peruvian folk art. They originally depicted carved and painted sculptures of religious figures and were displayed in rural churches as alters. Today the boxes take the form of three dimensional scenes of daily life in Peru such as markets, shops, harvests, weddings and other ceremonies.
