#722 Abstract Nativity

Acquired 2015

From Novica of National Geographic, this two-piece nativity is designed with a modern abstract design. It comes from Peru and was created and designed by Zoila Davila. This artist creates this abstract look using only the cloaks of Mary and Joseph as coverings. They have no faces. Baby Jesus, also with no face, lays on the drape of Mary's cloak and Joseph's only adornment besides his green cloak is the brightly colored staff. The pieces are hand painted by her adult children. I purchased this set online and received it November 2015. Purchase price, $39.00.
