OUR COLLECTION — LATIN AMERICA — HONDURAS 390. STONE NATIVITY
This stone and bead Nativity is made from polished stone called Blue Grass Jade and finished with beads and wire. Mary holds baby Jesus, Joseph holds a staff, and the angel has metal wings. The set was made by Chave in Trujillo, Honduras. Chave was making other products from stones and beads but they were not selling well, so we gave her the idea of creating first a Madonna and Child sculpture and then a Nativity set. Happily, these items sell so well that Chave was able to put a roof on her home from the profits. The figures stand 3.5 inches tall.
