#847 Honduras Ox Cart

Acquired 2019

This straw muslin-toned nativity is a different approach to the Story of Christmas. Created by the craftsmen and women from Honduras, the piece reflects the Holy Family riding in a cart pulled by straw weaved donkeys. Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus ride comfortably along wheeled by the braided straw wheels. I found this piece on the fund-raiser auction at the Friends of the Crèche Nativity Convention in Santa Fe, NM – November 2019. The piece was released by Serv International, but I’m not sure which year. Nor do I know who donated it to the auction! I do know that I bid $45 to secure it!
