Details

Carved by hand from pinewood, this unique nativity scene is comprised of nine pieces. Jose Canil Ramos depicts the Holy Family with an angel, the Three Kings, a donkey and a cow. The figures appear as calaveras, literally "skulls," a popular theme in Guatemala for the Day of the Dead, November 2.

The angel's wings and Joseph's staff are removed for shipping, and cotton felt fabric protects the base of each figurine.

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.

"My daughter loved it!"

She is really into Sugar Skull art and had been looking for a nativity that would also suit her tastes (like black or Emo colors). She was blown away by this. Excellent craftmanship! I just wish that there was a matching manger to go with it.

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.
