#333 Las Posadas

Acquired 2002

From Autom catalog, December 2002. Las Posadas are traditionally celebrated in Mexico and in the Southwestern U.S. While the tradition varies from place to place, the common thread is a reenactment of Mary and Joseph looking for a place to stay, as they journeyed to Bethlehem to be counted in the census. Made of raffia, fabric and wood, this unusual nativity wagon honors that tradition. Purchase price, $79.
