#140 Katie's Copper Nativity

Acquired 1996

My niece, Katie Fernandes, was honored to be a guest student in Mexico during the summer of 1996. While there and touring the country, she found this nativity set and thought of me! She found this set in Santa Clara, Mexico, just below Mexico City. This area is known for their copper. In that copper turns green, this heavy set was hand-painted green as part of its design.
