Details

The Christmas star blazes through the heavens on a quiet night in the Andes. It illuminates a nativity scene with a Peruvian setting. Leonor Quispe gives an Andean setting to the very first Christmas. She works in the traditional art of arpillería (patchwork) to create this extraordinary wall hanging. Each tiny figure is crafted in three dimensions and lavishly embroidered.

A display rod can be slipped through an opening at the top.

I purchased the Nativity Christmas Tree. The details are absolutely beautiful. Everyone who comes into my home admires it.
Oh my goodness. I absolutely love the tapestry. It is so beautiful. I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my sister and I know she will love it also. Beautiful hand work. Thank you so much and may God bless.
