Details

This nativity scene by Jose Canil Ramos combines the strength of faith with traditional Guatemalan arts. Baby Jesus is welcomed by Mary and Joseph, as well as the archangel Gabriel, the Three Wise Men wearing golden crowns, and a donkey and cow. Ramos carves each figurine by hand from pinewood that was weathered and dried during the summer months. The characters' florid orange robes and green cloaks are painted by hand. Featuring 10 pieces with protective felt on the bottom, this nativity scene preserves a tradition that was brought to Guatemala in 1649.

Joseph's hand with staff and Gabriel's wings are removable.

Jose is a very talented wood carver. He first learned when he was just ten years old from his father. This art has been passed down for generations and Jose plans to continue the tradition and teach his son how to carve.

Jose Canil Ramos has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $250 and the most recent for $2100. Proceeds were used to invest in wood, saws, paints, and sandpaper for production.

"Heirloom quality"

While I am not Christian, I appreciate a well-mad nativity scene. The colors are appealing and the design beautiful. These sold very quickly in my retail store, while many other nativity sets are still here after December 25th.

I love ""Paxot Holy Family"" for the beauty of the painting of the figures. It is a centrepiece at Christmas.
