I believe this medium sized retablo box or portable shrine, comes from Peru. It is constructed of a handmade and carved wooden box with doors and is painted in typical folk art motifs.  The doors close nicely and open to display a painted canvas of the Virgin Mary with baby Jesus. The small canvas is in excellent condition and the colors are muted but not faded. It can be hung on the wall. It is not signed but looking at it closely, one can see that it was lovingly made.  There are a few rough spots on the corners but otherwise in excellent condition. Closed or open, it is a stunning piece! 

One of a kind.
