Artist Comments: In South America, it is common to see decorative boxes called “nichos” set upon tables and pedestals to display religious icons. These boxes may serve as a religious altar to mark a significant religious occasion or to honor a patron saint. This antique Guatemalan Nicho features a wood carved Christ Santos and a hand painted tin Retablo of the three faces of the Holy Trinity.
