#716 Uganda Nativity

Acquired 2015

This handcrafted unique nativity came from Uganda, Africa. It was a pre-order for new 2015 Nativities marketed by Fair Trade through Yonder Star, PA. I happened to see it on their web site and immediately ordered it waiting almost two months before it arrived November 2015. As I looked it up later to print information about it, I couldn't find the set - it obviously was sold out!The colorful native pieces reflecting the culture of the Ugandan people are mounted on round wooden coasters. Included are four pieces all in Ugandan dress -the Holy Family, a shepherd with his sheep, the kings bringing their gifts to the Christ Child, and an ox and donkey. Purchase price, $69.95.
