A 13” tall hand-painted and framed wooden retablo with a center image “Shot Through the Heart.”
Retablos are typically painted depictions of important religious icons 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.
