Wearing traditional Andean dress, Mary and Joseph end their quest for shelter in a church in the highlands of Peru. Dionisio Rojas Gutiérrez crafts a New World creche where strong stone walls provide shelter from winter winds. Angels, shepherds and musicians accompany the miracle of the first Christmas, and doves symbolize the presence of the Holy Spirit.
