This gorgeous Nicho Cabinet was made in the Philippines but features the design of Latino artist Charlie Carrillo. Drawing on his rich Hispanic heritage combined with the Spanish Colonial cultural influence in New Mexico, artist, teacher and scholar Charlie Carrillo celebrates the santero tradition through his devotional creations such as this wonderful piece.
From his studio in Santa Fe, Charlie uses traditional art techniques such as sculpting wood and grinding his own pigments for his creations. He is a 2006 recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts, National Heritage Fellowship Award which honors American Folk artists for their contributions to our national cultural history.
We are showing this nicho with two of our Santos (St Francis of Assisi and Our Lady of Guadalupe). The piece is painted in the primitive style to look as though it has been around for hundreds of years but yet is still modern enough to fit in today's décor.
Made completely of wood and hand painted by artisans in the Philippines, after the original design of the artist, the nicho measures 18 inches high (including the concha) by 11-1/2 inches wide by 7-1/2 inches deep. The arched niche is 12-1/2 inches high by 8-1/4 inches wide and 7 inches deep.
The entire piece is painted and the sides, top and front are decorated by hand. The background of the niche features a blue sky and stars.
This piece has been produced by Midwest of Canon Falls in celebration of American Artists.
