Details

Baby Jesus is welcomed with happy smiles by Mary and Joseph, as well as by the archangel Gabriel and the Three Wise Men. Guarded by a donkey and a cow, this nativity scene is endearing. Jose Canil Ramos carves each figurine by hand with pinewood he weathers and dries during the summer months. The characters' florid orange robes and purple cloaks are painted by hand, including their smiling faces. Featuring nine pieces, this nativity scene preserves a tradition that was brought to Guatemala in 1649.

Exquisite wood carving, brightly and finely painted; this is our second wood-carving from Jose, and the quality-price ratio is unsurpassed. Recommend this artisan highly!

"Beautiful! Rejoice nativity scene"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Wow wow wow! I received the nativity yesterday and I love it more than I thought I would (and I had high hopes). It is beautiful and well made. Each piece is small enough to separately fit in my hand and together they fill the space I have created for them just right. Thank you so much! I am very glad that I discovered Novica.
