Wearing traditional clothing, the Holy Family is portrayed as Shipibo people in this novel nativity scene. Shepherds bear gifts from the rain forest. The Shipibo are a Panoan-speaking culture living near the headwaters of the Amazon. Although they maintain much of their original way of life, they have also adapted some contemporary urban customs. The Mamani Family crafts the lovely set in ceramic, substituting the customary cow and donkey with a wild boar and a tapir.
