"A Cherished Reminder of Our Love"

I am fascinated by the folk-art simplicity of the figures in this set. They perfectly capture the spirit of love and peace that the Nativity represents. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my wife two years ago. She adored it; and now that she has died, I treasure it as a reminder of her and our 40 years of shared love.

"Beautiful"

Thanks for this adorable Nativity set that represents the Mapuche people of Chile. My son is serving a mission in Chile, teaching people about Jesus Christ. This will be a perfect keepsake to remember his time in Chile, and the birth of Jesus Christ

"Cui Welcomes Christmas"

This is a totally adorable piece - makes everyone smile and of course, if you have been in Peru...the guinea pig has to be part of ones travel experience. It cannot help but bring a smile. The technical execution of the piece is superb but has the essence of the handmade crafts of the area.

"Not just for Christmas!"

When I saw this item, the word LOVE immediately came to mind. Beatific faces, embracing arms around the Word made Flesh. It is a perfect size to keep displayed on a shelf year round; and why not? I bought one as a gift and one for myself. Wrapped very nicely as well as securely.
