Nativity scenes are one of the most widely collected forms of folk art. Artists around the world interpret the Christmas story using the tools, techniques, and imagery of their own local traditions. In this 8-piece creche from Chichicastenango, Guatemala, Mayan Quiche artisans hand-carve and paint each figure in an exuberant, rustic style that reflects the Holy Family’s humble origins. Please accept small variations in these individually handcrafted pieces.
Beautiful small nativity set with lovely painting and detail. Would highly recommend.
This little folk art nativity is charming in its simplicity. Eye catching and small enough to tuck onto a shelf in front of books.
