#617 Wire Nativity

Acquired 2012

Also, while visiting Portico's Open House, I found this piece made from fence wire. Done by Vintage, this specific piece is made by Jeremie, from Haiti. The piece is all one - intertwined, twisted, bent, and shaped into the figures of Mary, Joseph, and the Christ Child within the “box style” wired stable. The wire extends upward above the stable to create the star. This piece was purchased November 3, 2012, at $26.00.
