Wood nativity scene, 'Rejoice' (medium, set of 9)

Item # 47644
In Stock

Baby Jesus is welcomed with happy smiles by Mary and Joseph, as well as by the archangel Gabriel and the Three Wise Men. Guarded by a donkey and a cow, this nativity scene is endearing. Jose Canil Ramos carves each figurine by hand with pinewood he weathers and dries during the summer months. The characters' florid orange robes and purple cloaks are painted by hand, including their smiling faces. Featuring nine pieces, this nativity scene preserves a tradition that was brought to Guatemala in 1649.

Artisan: Jose Canil Ramos

Artisan Jose Canil Ramos Born in Chichicastenango, Guatemala, Jose Canil learnt his craft from his father. 'When I was younger he would only allow me to sandpaper a piece, and as I got older he would let me paint too. It wasn't until I was older that he'd finally let me carve the wood. I remember well the first piece I ever did completely on my own: an angel. I put it among the things my father took to the market to sell, and then I lost track of it! I hope it got sold to someone who appreciated it because at the time I was only an apprentice.'
