#745 Country Accents

Acquired 2016

Brightly printed country fabric is used to dress the six pieces of this Country Accent set. The patterns are typical of what you would see in a country farm home. The actual covering of the nativity figures uses fine grain corn husk before they are dressed in their country attire. Some of the fabrics interchange with the pieces. The three kings are holding their gifts all wrapped with colorful country fabric. Each of the robes are edged with the fine corn husk braiding requiring meticulous tedious work. The pieces include Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, and the three kings. Note that Baby Jesus' swaddling clothes match the outer layer of Mary's robe. Purchased March 2, 2016, Chapel of the Holy Cross, Sedona, AZ. Purchase price, $53.00.
