#632 Jacaranda Tree Seed Pod Nativity

Acquired 2013

This darling nativity set is housed inside the seed pod of a Jacaranda tree from Bolivia. The magically small Holy Family Nativity scene is handmade of ceramic pieces and mounted inside the seed pod. Notice the star is mounted over the top of the Holy Family on the inside top of the tree pod. No two sets are the same because of the difference of each Jacaranda seed pod. This set is created by artisans called Winay, from Cochabamba, Bolivia, which is a grassroots organization whose goal is to provide income for community women. I purchased the set through Yonder Star, May 2013, purchase price, $14.99.
