Outstanding Nativity Set!
I was blown away by this unique and well-crafted art piece! It?s even better than the pictures! Thank you John for taking such pride in your work- it shows. Love it!
Cant wait to share with others
For past two years have hosted a Nativity Open House with depictions from many countries/cultures. I especially like the cultural reference of the hat shop below. Just as many of us learn the story of room made for the Holy Family in the animals shelter, this shows room made for the birth and adoration of Jesus where a family makes their livelihood.
I ordered one for me as I had seen similar item in Peru at the gift shop. I loved it so much that I ordered 3 more to give to my daughters. It is so beautiful and well made.
Erika Ulloa Retablo-style nativity scenes
"It fills me with pride to know that my retablos will be going to different parts of the world where the culture is totally different… but just as beautiful as my own."

Peruvian Huamanga Stone Nativity, "Christmas is Peace"
Juan Licas Coronado adapts the shape of the traditional hat to create a warm, snug environment. Inside, the Holy Family kneels together with the Three Kings to adore the newborn Jesus. For this sculpture, the artisan selects stone quarried in Huamanga in the central sierra of Peru. Its texture and color are similar to alabaster.
Varanasi Folk Art Nativity, "Varanasi Christmas"$65
This jubilant nativity set is hand-carved from mango wood in the Indian holy city of Varanasi. Using simple hand tools like chisels and saws, Varanasi artisans shape and sand the pieces before painting them with brightly colored lacquer. The set includes twelve figures, with the largest standing just shy of 3 inches tall.
Hand-Painted Nativity Scene Ceramic Sculpture from Mexico, "Tree of Life Nativity"$79.99
Mexican artisan Javier Ramirez celebrates the Christian nativity with this "tree of life" sculpture. In the center, the nativity includes Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, an angel, two farm animals, and the three wise men, surrounded by figurines depicting flowers, birds, and butterflies. Each piece is diligently crafted from ceramic and painted by hand, assembled by steel wire.
Not intended for use with candles.
Artisan Crafted Christianity Wood Nativity Scene (Set of 10), "Devotion"$52.99
This nativity scene by Jose Canil Ramos combines the strength of faith with traditional Guatemalan arts. Baby Jesus is welcomed by Mary and Joseph, as well as the archangel Gabriel and the Three Wise Men wearing golden crowns. Guarded by a donkey and a cow, this nativity scene is endearing. Ramos carves each figurine by hand from pinewood that was weathered and dried during the summer months. The characters' florid orange robes and purple cloaks are painted by hand, and Gabriel's wings are detachable. Featuring 10 pieces, this nativity scene preserves a tradition that was brought to Guatemala in 1649.
