Casa Museo Joaquín López Antay: Honoring family heritage and celebrating the culture of Ayacucho

Retablos represent the culture, traditions and daily activities in wooden boxes painted with vibrant colors in the Ayacucho region of central Peru. In 1942, Joaquín López Antay created the first Ayacucho retablo, transforming the Cajón de San Marcos, whose theme was religious and which was used to bless activities, into a unique piece that materializes the culture of its community.
