The reredo, an item often found in older churches, has become an established component of New Mexican folk art. The reredo is a painted altar screen-depicting saints. Intricate woodcarvings are another element of southwestern religious art. Also displayed are numerous community traditions reflecting a strong Hispanic heritage, especially at Christmas time.
