The Holy Family sails on a traditional reed canoe in this endearing nativity scene by Alberto Aparicio Canchari. Known as caballito de totora, the canoe is filled with three sacks destined as offerings to the land. The beige one is filled with water, the green one with yucca, and there are potatoes and lima beans in each of the two black ones. Sheep and llamas guard Baby Jesus in a nativity scene that is sculpted by hand with Andean pride.

Worcester, England

I have two of Alberto Aparicio Canchari sculptures, Born in a Canoe and Light of Andes. They are full of detail and are two of my favourite Christmas pieces.



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
