The Holy Birth takes place under the protection of two large hands in this sculpture by Dionisio Rojas. The figures are rendered in traditional Andean attire, suggesting the spiritual devoutness of the artisan’s native land. Shaped from clay, the piece revels in a delicate application of soothing tones. A strong and symbolic work for holiday décor. Maqui is an indigenous Quechua word meaning "hand."
