Mexican Nicho/Retablo Wall Altar circa 1900s
Not only is this a beautiful object, it also demands to be used. You won't be able to help yourself. A photo or two, a candle or incense burner, an inherited brooch, a meaningful image out of a magazine, a dried flower, an old toy, they'll find their way to it... a nicho brings a home to life. Finds its soul. That's its job, to hold that space.
