Description

Amazing! We have the honor of presenting truly unique, hand-made Nativity scenes in the tradition and style of the Jemez Pueblo First Peoples. These items are made on location in New Mexico. The incredibly talented artisans harvest clay from their land and begin the complicated process of creating, firing and finish painting each piece in classic styles representative of the artists and the people who first walked the lands of North America. 

This Nativity scene features 8 pieces including the Holy Family, a sheep, a cow, and three Wisemen, each bearing gifts: a basket, moccasins and a drum. Tallest figure is approximately 5-1/2 inches high.

About the artist: The artist is a Native American potter from the reservation of Jemez Pueblo. She has been making pottery, storytellers and other figures since the age of twelve. She has learned from her mother who took the time to teach her how to make pottery and taught her to get the clay from the hills of Jemez. She is now passing the skills on to her daughter, Anissa Tsosie.

The clays and paint the Jemez potters use come from the surrounding areas of Jemez Pueblo so everything they use in the process of making the pottery is natural. 

 

Please note: This is a hand-made product. Stock levels are limited and new items take time to create. Variations in painting and shape will not be uncommon and should be expected.
