Retablos and shrines

Mexican shrines and retablos decorated with skulls and images of Frida Kahlo.

Mexican nichos

These fun and colorful wooden boxes are known in Mexico as nichos and have their origin in the simple little shrines that families bought from artisans to decorate with images of saints and virgins.

Over the years, these nichos lost their votive character and began to adapt to more lighthearted images, especially skulls and representations of the Day of the Dead.

Handicraft from Oaxaca and San Miguel de Allende

Mexican handicrafts are undoubtedly one of the most colorful and authentic in the world and that is why they are so dazzling. Our selection of nichos is made in Oaxaca or San Miguel de Allende, two of the most recognized areas for their quality and creativity.

The outside of the box can be made of wood or metal and can be in the shape of a box or a cross. The figurines inside are made of papier-mâché or plaster. The metal niches have a small glass door, which allows you to insert the image of your choice.
