HeLa Retablo

It's Retablo time!!! Every year, Lawndale has a retablo exhibition to honor and celebrate Dia de los Muertos.  The retablos are sold for fundraising at a silent auction gala.  I've been making a retablo for Lawndale for many years and really look forward to the whole event every year.  For this year's retablo, I took inspiration from the book The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks  by Rebecca Skloot which told the story of Henrietta Lacks and HeLa cells.
