This star sparkles with many colors as it celebrates the birth of Jesus. The Holy Family, as well as the angel, are dressed in bright Cuzco cloaks as Leonor Quispe brings Peruvian stylizations to this universal story. A llama, donkey and sheep smile as they make part of this endearing nativity scene. Quispe sews and embroiders the appliqué composition by hand, crafting characters with three-dimensional artistry.
