"Beautiful llamas!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This retablo incorporates a nice twist on the Christmas story: instead of lambs or camels, we see beautiful llamas giving warmth to the baby Jesus. Jose and Maria are dressed the way you would see them in a Catholic Cathedral, but the baby Jesus looks a little Peruvian to me, wearing his little chullo hat. Theres also a man and woman dressed in traditional Peruvian garments. Theyre the llama keepers. Love the big flowers in the background and around the top and sides of the retablo. This Nativity scene is more beautiful than any mass produced Nativity out there. Really hard to buy as a gift, because youll want to keep it!

"Zoo escapee? Jane Goodall visits Brazil?"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

First--there is no way to click on no, this was not a gift.But it wasnt a gift. This is a beautiful piece, no question. But instead of the promised tapir, it has a very agitated, wild-eyed, cross-eyed chimpanzee. No doubt hes upset because he doesnt belong in a Brazilian rain forest--chimpanzees live only in Africa. Somewhere, in an African-themed Nativity, there must be a little tapir who is tired of explaining that he is not a baby elephant. I can cure the chimpanzees crossed eyes and wild-eyed appearance--I have a tiny paintbrush. But I dont see how I can turn him into a tapir.
