Animation Synopsis

Inspired by the Peruvian craftwork called “Retablo Ayacuchano”, Retablo is an animation giving movement and life to this traditional art. A Retablo Ayacuchano is a rectangular wooden box containing small sculptures of people and the environment in which they live, work, and celebrate. In the animation Retablo, figures come alive to prepare for and celebrate the traditional Yunza festival, often represented in this Peruvian craftwork.
The retablo project includes both this animation and a video documentary on retablo artists from Peru. See accompanying Video Documentary.
