With this sculpture, Carlos Galvez from Ayacucho, Peru, combines elements of two traditional Peruvian artisanal legacies, the Huamanga stone sculpture and the retablo or "diorama". This hand-sculpted Huamanga stone nativity scene features tiny carved figurines of the Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, two farm animals and an angel; the traditional stable or cave has been replaced with a box with two doors beautifully engraved with flowers that call to mind the traditional retablo style.
Please note: The figures within the nativity are fixed in place and cannot be removed.
