#838 Mayan Miniature Basket Nativity (Guatemala)

Acquired 2018

To my delightful surprise, I received a small package in the mail from our cousin in San Mateo, Sarah Cozza. Inside was this darling 1 ½” Guatemalan basket housing one of the smallest nativities I’ve ever seen! Inside this tiny basket cavity were six ½” pieces of the Holy Nativity Family. This darling miniscule set includes Mary, Joseph, angel, Baby Jesus, and a cow and donkey. Each one was tightly wrapped in purple tissue – the sign of royalty! Sarah said she saw it at a World Market and immediately thought of me. I’m so very grateful. Gifted to me, December 2018.
