This is a retablo from Peru. The scene inside is carved of an alabaster type stone called piedra de huamonga, which has been tinted. All the figures are carved, rather than sculpted from the potato paste mixture usually found in Peruvian retablos. That makes this nativity more distinctive. One of the carves animals is a llama; the other is a lamb. The carving is quite detailed. The case is wooden with simple leather hinges. It can sit or it cam be hung on the wall. It is a bit more than five and a half inches tall (13.5 cm.).
