Details

Guatemala's Marybel Gonzalez presents an unusual take on the traditional nativity scene, not only in materials but also in structure. Composed exclusively of members of the Holy Family, this nativity scene has the three figures in an upright position in descending order of height. The Holy Family is crafted with solid-colored cotton and patterned upcycled cotton fabrics; their heads are created with manta, a coarse cotton cloth, as are Joseph's arms which encircle his family. Some of the detailing is done with jute recycled from coffee sacks and cord fashioned from maguey, or "agave americana," fibers. Cotton fill is used to fill Joseph's body, with marble gravel at the bottom to aid in keeping the figures upright; Joseph's staff is bamboo. A simple pair of eyelashes adorns the face of the new mother and father, giving them an expression of blissful serenity. The Baby Jesus comes in the form of a brightly colored Guatemalan worry doll.

"Unique nativity"

We love the nature of this nativity, how Joseph?s arms are envoloping Mary and the Christ Child. A great addition for any collector.
