#543 Coconut Nativity

Acquired 2009

Very similar to my Hawaiian Nativity from 1987, this piece is a gift to me from Maria Cuevas' sister, Anita Macies. While Maria now lives in Idaho, Anita is still in Atwater. When Maria came down to see her family and us, she brought Anita with her, and Anita honored me with this nativity that she wanted to add to my collection. This nativity is structured differently than the earlier one that I have. This piece has more detail and is probably made in South America as opposed to Hawaii. I am honored to include it in the collection. Anita gave it to me in January 2009.
