This scene made by Kelvin Mwa is full of joy and energy--well made by untrained artist--and it's wonder-full!
We have added a new country to our nativity scene collection - Zambia! This Zambian nativity is crafted from colorful batik fabrics and wire wrapped with yarn and sisal. These materials are all sourced from recycled scraps that would otherwise be discarded. Artists in Zambia use these materials to hand craft these vibrant nativity scenes and are paid a fair wage for their work.
The nativity figures stand approximately 6 inches tall. The stable is approximately 11 inches high x 8.5 inches wide x 2 inches deep.
The wire figures may be shaped and positioned to your liking. Some slight bending may occur in transit so please just re-shape any figures that may topple over. One of the standing figures may need to be positioned alongside the stable for extra support in standing. It may take a little patience the first time you set up your Zambian nativity.
This nativity was acquired from Zambia through a Fair Trade importation. Fair Trade pays a fair wage to otherwise impoverished people.
