Scissors Dancers Motif Retablo (Handshaped figurines)
The “danzaq” or scissors dance art is transmitted from generation to generation in and around the Ayacucho area in the Peruvian mountain region. Scissors dance art begins in early childhood, and it is said that its vocation is similar to that of a priest. The “danzaq” or “scissors dance” is represented in this traditional wooden and ceramic altarpiece replica retablo. Hand crafted and hand painted by Peruvian artists of Ayacucho. Each figurine inside the retablo is hand shaped, not using a mould, which gives this beautiful piece an inherent artistic value. Makes a great decoration gift.
