Retablos are a mix of Spanish and Native American traditions. They originated with the personal shrines carried by Spanish soldiers, and later combined with Indian motifs and stories. Crafted from a mixture of plaster of paris and boiled potato, retablos depict religious events, festivals, scenes of daily life and stories of social and political change.
