Details

Alberto Aparicio Canchari crafts an endearing nativity scene featuring the Holy Family accompanied by the Three Wise Men. They all wear the traditional costumes and facial artistry that is unique to the Ashaninka people of the Amazon Rainforest. The master ceramist draws attention to the Ashaninka cause, for they are being displaced from their homeland by loggers. The set includes a donkey and a cow too, and all figurines are painted by hand with expressive detail. Set includes eight pieces.

"My 41st creche"

I was thrilled with this creche (nativity scene) It is beautifully made and it arrived safely, packaged in lovely paper with bow and a little tiny figure attached! Such attention to detail! I have several other creches from Peru in my collection, but this one is very special and different.

"Zymoglyphic Nativity"

This nativity is similar to artifacts made by the Remojadas culture, "Classic" period 500 to 800 AD. This group produced figures, similar to my nativity, referred to as Happy Objects. Your artist has produced a terrific nativity group that I am delighted to own. I ordered too many by accident and gave one to a very good friend who is thrilled with it because of it uniqueness and reference to the Remojadas Culture.

"Nativity and wonderful piece of art"

Wonderful depiction of the nativity. I enjoy that it incorporates the local culture and artistic skill of the artisan. It can be displayed all during the year, not just at Christmas.

Senor Canchari, I received your ""Born to the Amazons"" nativity set yesterday and it made my day! Absolutely breathtaking -- even better than the pictures. Your work of art will be on my mantle all year long -- not just for the Christmas season. I salute your wonderful talent and spirit. MaryJo
