Mazapan is a bread dough used for making figures such as this Colombian nativity set. Mazapan is not to be confused with Marzapan, which is an almond paste.
Each piece of the Mazapan nativity set is shaped by hand. We just love the tranquil greens and blues this 8 piece nativity set.
Fair trade imported from Colombia. Figures measure approx. 2-1/2" high x 3/4" diameter.
These nativities are made by artisans at Piel Acida, a craft producing organization started by Ms. Ana Piedrahita in 1995 in Bogota, Colombia. The organization has grown to support artisans all over the country creating traditional and contemporary craft products as well as providing insurance, educational assistance, loans and other services.
