Sailing through Titicaca Lake, a smiling feline face on a barge transports the Holy Family as well as three sheep. Proud of their country's traditions, Guillermo and Eduardo dress Mary and Joseph in the style of Puno and set them on a caballito de totora, the boats built of reed used for transport between Peru and Bolivia over 1000 years ago. The overall sculpture features individual figurines molded of clay and barbotina (pulverized clay) and painted by hand with expressive detail.
