Tenderly held in a divine embrace, the Holy Family receives the Christ child. Hovering white doves and kneeling lambs join the scene under starlit blue heavens. Dionisio Rojas creates a gentle interpretation of the first Christmas, in a new-world setting where the personages wear traditional Andean dress. Crafted by hand, each piece is individually painted with bright colors. An opening in the back permits a votive candle to be inserted.

I was drawn to this piece immediately because of its originality. Secondly it has several personal interpretations for me. The concept of the nativity cradled in a pair of hands is so spiritual and one I have never seen before. I have a large nativity collection from around the world and this one is exceptional. Each year after Christmas I pick one nativity to display all year long. This one will be it for 2017.
