Retablos, by definition, must be of a religious nature...right? Interesting for sure.

I like the big one in the middle and also the little one under it...

Those are cool! I especially like the one in the lower right with the star, and what looks like chile ristras.

I think a wall full of them is the way to go if you collect them.

My compliments to the artist, this is a genre we don't see often here.

Spanish Market and Indian Market in Santa Fe are extraordinary events offering many subjects for photographers.
