Details

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.

"Beautiful craftsmanship!"

Received my nativity set today in perfect condition. It is absolutely exquisite! The craftsmanship is outstanding! I am a collector of nativities from my travels around the world (have around 50) and I have nothing like this hand-carved set. It is petite and lovely. What makes it even more special is its long journey to reach my doorstep. I have made several trips to Guatemala, but found nothing like this while I was there. Thank you, Jose for a job well done! I will treasure this nativity set.

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.
