Hi: I do not have access to the painting. It is my nieces, given to her by her mother in law who has passed. I was trying to find some information for her as a surprise. I know it must be about 24 inches by 30 inches.

This is the work of Edgar Moreno and Diana Maria Moreno of Costa Rica. It is bas relief (raised) on plasterboard (plaster of paris) then hand painted with acrylics and oil. They did this piece in the 80's and it is a depiction of the Village of Leyva Boyaca in Colombia. Currently, "Edgar y Maria" is a family business with their grown children now also doing this work and is renamed "Edgar y Maria y Hijos" (Edgar and Maria and Children). A piece like this has a value of 30.00 being one of their older pieces. Current work sells for 8 dollars to 14 dollars.
