Details

Alberto Aparicio Canchari crafts an endearing nativity scene featuring the Holy Family accompanied by the Three Wise Men. They all wear the traditional costumes unique to the Lambayeque region. The set includes a donkey and a cow, each figurine painted by hand with expressive detail. According to legend, Lambayeque receives its name after a green stone deity, known as Yampallec, brought to the region by king Naylamp. It is said that while the divine sculpture stayed in the region, the lands were fertile and the people flourished under a reign of peace.

"Unusual scene honoring Christ's birth"

I love this item. I refer to it as "unusual" for the dress/attire that is worn by the adorers. What a sweet and great item.

I have two of Alberto Aparicio Canchari sculptures, Born in a Canoe and Light of Andes. They are full of detail and are two of my favourite Christmas pieces.

Senor Canchari, I received your ""Born to the Amazons"" nativity set yesterday and it made my day! Absolutely breathtaking -- even better than the pictures. Your work of art will be on my mantle all year long -- not just for the Christmas season. I salute your wonderful talent and spirit. MaryJo
