Beautiful piece of art!
This retablo is beautifully made and is a wonderful addition to our home. It is colorful, playful, and makes us smile. Thank you for your beautiful art!
Cant wait to share with others
For past two years have hosted a Nativity Open House with depictions from many countries/cultures. I especially like the cultural reference of the hat shop below. Just as many of us learn the story of room made for the Holy Family in the animals shelter, this shows room made for the birth and adoration of Jesus where a family makes their livelihood.
I am impressed with the quality of this piece - the workmanship far exceeds my expectations. I have recommended this artist to a friend who collects nativity sets. The service from Novica was fast; the retablo was packaged well. I would be interested in seeing new pieces by Maria as they become available.
