Jose Canil Ramos combines Guatemala's Day of the Dead customs with Christian traditions for the design of this extraordinary nativity scene. "I thought it would be fun to make it with innocent skeletons," explains Canil. He carves each pinewood figurine by hand, allowing each piece to bake to achieve an aged, rustic appearance. This nativity scene includes the Holy Family, the Three Kings, and angel, and mule and an ox, for a total of nine pieces.

Joseph's hand and staff, as well as the angel's wings are removed for shipping.

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.

"Very Happy"

Looks bright and colorful - great on Mexican wood and tile table. Just what I wanted, as Im a fan of (sugar) skulls/Day of the Dead. Its on the small side, but certainly adequate. I enjoy this item and am pleased with the item and purchase experience.

I love ""Paxot Holy Family"" for the beauty of the painting of the figures. It is a centrepiece at Christmas.

I adore my St. Francis Statue. I have it displayed in my work office and several people have commented on it. One way to gently share faith. Thank you.
