AKATAKSA RETURN POLICY

no longer allows us to automatically accept returns in exchange for merchandise. However, WE WILL CONTINUE TO ACCEPT RETURNS IN EXCHANGE FOR ITEMS IN OUR STORE INVENTORY [buyer pays return shipping within three days of receipt]. The new, mandatory 14-day return policy allows unscrupulous buyers the opportunity to peddle and abuse our material for two weeks and then return it for their money back. This policy will create a new wave of crooks that can easily create vast inventories with no investment risks save for the possible minimal cost of return shipping. In the meantime, we lose our packing and shipping expenses, we lose PayPal fees, we lose relisting fees, we lose potential clients, we lose weeks of exposure and we lose potential legitimate sales.

Ours is a small operation with over 17 years serving the indigenous peoples of South America by documenting their cultures and sharing that information with the world. We believe that we offer the best and most accurate descriptions in our field. At the moment, sales are our only source of income. There are five of us working full-time in our Bolivian office plus five indigenous field investigators. That’s 10 people trying to work and support families on what’s often less than $2000 a month, not including operating costs. In the office, each of us makes .72 to .86 cents U.S. per hour and we work 50 to 60-hour weeks. Our monthly sales are extremely important to us and we simply cannot afford to offer money-back returns. WE PROMISE TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO ASSURE THAT YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH YOUR PURCHASES.

A HAND-PAINTED RELIGIOUS IMAGE ON WOOD

.

Inventory Number: TM8482
Country of Origin: Republica del Perú or Plurinational State of Bolivia.
Approximate Age: Antique [over 50 years old], 20th century.
Approximate Size: 8 3/4 inches by 5 3/4 inches by 3/8 inch.
Color: As in photos.
Condition: Excellent condition. The painted portion is darkened from age and surface soiling. There are no significant scratches or worn spots. Please refer to the photos.
Remarks: This is an old hand-painted wood "retablo" representing Saint Anthony (San Antonio). He holds a plume pin and is writing on a stack of papers. His frock is brown. The painting may have an undercoat of cream colored stucco. There is no signature to the painting. The artwork is quite nice suggesting that the artist had some formal training.

Up until about 30 years ago Catholic missionaries, called evangelizadores, traveled throughout the Andean highlands visiting towns and villages preaching their gospel. Many were artisans who produced crude to exquisite works of religious art in the form of painted panels, tin and wood "retablos," crucifixes, saint and virgin boxes, "santos," etc. Throughout indigenous communities missionary artists would often trade their works for llamas, sheep, food and other commodities. This is one of those works of art.
