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.

"New Heirloom"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This nativity set is absolutely gorgeous! I purchased it as a gift for my Bolivian "family". I cannot wait to take it to them and see their reaction! I am so excited to have a gift that all of them can enjoy. I appreciate that a nativity set is an important part of the Bolivian Christmas traditions which makes this gift even more special. I know that the kids in the Casa that my church supports will cherish it. Jose did a beautiful job. I love how this set is a work of art appealing especially to the young adults yet the little ones can safely handle it without fear of it breaking. I may have to order another nativity set created by Jose for myself ï?Š

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Jose suffers from a rare facial nerve paralysis and is currently treating the condition with physical therapy.

Jose is a very talented wood carver. He first learned when he was just ten years old from his father. This art has been passed down for generations and Jose plans to continue the tradition and teach his son how to carve.

Jose Canil Ramos has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $250 and the most recent for $2100. Proceeds were used to invest in wood, saws, paints, and sandpaper for production.

Jose's work helps generate employment opportunities for those in his community. With the sales from NOVICA, he can employ other artisans and help change the lives of his workers.

Jose hires several people in his community which provides them with a stable income for supporting their families.
