Wooden Framed Retablo of Archangel Gabriel 25919
A 13” tall hand-painted and framed wooden retablo with a center image of the Archangel Gabriel holding a lily.
Retablos are painted depictions of important religious icons and are found throughout the Americas as well as Europe. Nichos are wooden frames or boxes – much like a shadow box – which is used to either frame an iconic image or to serve as a mini-altar.
Our nicho-style retablo is carved from wood with a one-inch deep frame just deep enough to hold tiny offerings such as milagros, photos or religious medals.
The interior of the nicho features a hand-painted depiction of the Archangel Gabriel holding a lily and the frame of the nicho is beautifully painted as well. Soothing colors were used on this hand-crafted folk art piece including an orange-red, toffee, brown, turquoise, gold and green.
It measures 13” in height, 6” in width and is ready to hang.
