Frida Kahlo Mini Retablo Box by johannachambers Frida Kahlo Mini Retablo Box by johannachambers
A tiny retablo I made for my sister, who is really into this style lately. I thought this little box was so awesome cuz it has a little shadowbox compartment in the lid.

She will love it. I have a small collection of Mexican folk art. It would fit there perfectly!

Here is the studio that made my pieces: [link]

There is a shop in Amsterdam that stocks work from there. It is not that expensive.

I also found a place on the internet that sold nichos to be painted by yourself. I never ordered any though. There have got to be books! If I run across any I'll let you know.

I did save that link, but it doesn't exist anymore. I found this: [link]=Decorative+Pieces%2FTin+Nichos

But they are much more expensive than I remember. I'll have a look again in the weekend. Let me know if you find something first!

This one is cool! I want one of the tin ones! :D Kinda pricy but it would be worth it for a gift or something...

I think I might try and make something of my own. If and when I have the time. The site I had before was less expensive. Do you live anywhere near Mexico?

Still, they are fun!

I do live fairly near the border (I live just north of San Diego.) I'd been wanting to see Mexico some more, but the government has been advising people not to go to Tijuana due to violence there, but who knows if they are just being paranoid...
