Ceramic ornaments, 'Local Nativity' (set of 6) (Peru)

Fine ceramic is used to craft six intricate ornaments, each depicting an Andean variation on the traditional nativity. Working from the Peruvian highlands, Feriberto Aylas designs this set of Christmas ornaments, including depictions of the nativity inside two churches, a cottage, a yellow hut, a floral house, and beneath la estrella fugaz, or the Star of Bethlehem. Working with family, the artisan carefully hand-paints each ornament.
