Carlos Galvez hand sculpts this miniature nativity scene using Huamanga stone, or alabaster, found in the Ayacucho region in the Peruvian highlands. Much prized by sculptors, artists have been creating beautiful art using this material for centuries; one of its most attractive qualities is the variety of its tonality. The artisan creates this nativity scene using Huamanga stone in darker grey for the Holy Family's refuge and a contrasting lighter shade for the figures of Mary, Joseph, the Baby Jesus, the angel and the animals.
Please note: The figures within the nativity are fixed in place and cannot be removed.

"BEAUTIFUL BEYOND WORDS"
True folk art! I will display this year round, so much detail for a smaller piece, compact just right for that small space, rec'd safe & sound - nothing broken; wrapped in pretty kraft paper with ribbon and doll accent in the center of ribbon, I wish the artist would create extra pieces for it like cows; maji, camels, more angels. I will repurchase from this artist. Novica experience was hassle free and they do wonderful things for the artists around the world. God Bless
