Painted Bultos

Painted bultos are three-dimensional wooden sculptures that are carved and painted with Christian devotional images. The figures are typically placed upon small wooden bases or crosses. Sometimes the figures are placed within an architectural framework, as a subset of painted bultos known as bultos en nichos. The tradition has evolved from single standing figures to elaborate assemblages, often with contemporary themes and classic automobiles.
