Day of the Dead Bride and Groom Skeleton Retablo

This Peruvian Day of the Dead Wedding Skeleton Retablo is a painted plaster sculpture in a hand painted box.  Two skeletons dressed up for their wedding.  "Together for Eternity"

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

A folk art item that is affordable yet highly collectible.
