Works featured are: Santeros, depictions of religious figures in the form of bultos (painted and unpainted carvings in the round) and retablos (paintings on wooden panels); Textiles, loom weavings, traditionally made from hand-spun, vegetable-dyed yarns; Silver work, silver filigree and silver objects for daily or sacred use.
