In a charming twist on the traditional nativity, Guatemalan duo Juan and Carolina hand-carve this set of pinewood. Joseph, Mary, and baby Jesus are accompanied by an angel and the three wise men, each creatively depicted as an owl and painted by hand with vibrant designs and floral motifs. Instead of farm animals, the group is joined by a frog and a fish in this set of nine.
