#151 Kenyan Nativity

Acquired 1996

I found this very unusual set in “What on Earth” mail order catalog. It was my delight to add Kenya to my world collection of nativity sets. By 300 A.D., Christianity had traveled to Africa, and with it, the story of Jesus' humble birth. This ten-piece nativity is made of natural banana fiber by youth in Kenya. Purchased December 1996 for $34.95.
