Nativity Round Gourd74407
This year, the Vatican Nativity scene is from Peru, and we decided to create a whole collection of Nativity scenes (retablo).
This Christmas gourd features 8 ceramic figurines in a Nativity scene, each one painted by hand and secured inside the hollowed-out space of the gourd. The gourd ornament was cut in the middle as a round, hand carved, painted, and polished by a family of artisans in Cochas, Peru.
The interior is painted a midnight blue and white to recreate the sky, while the exterior is covered with stars.
It took 3 days to the artisan to complete this art. Only available in red.
