Product Description

Ceramic 6 piece Rapa Nui nativity from Chile with tallest piece 4" tall. Easter Island (Rapa Nui to the locals) is a Polynesian Island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean. Known for the large stone statues or moias on the island, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The island culture, complete with grass skirts and moias as the three wise men, comes through in this unique nativity set by Sergio Díaz. Sergio lives in the Metropolitan Region (Peñalonen). He dedicates about 60 hours per week to his work alongside another crafter. When they're in a pinch, his wife jumps in to help. He opened his own workshop in the beginning of the 1980’s in front of his house, hoping to revive traditional culture while supporting his family. He does it one piece at a time. First he fills the molds with a dough made of clay and water. The molds are left until they are dry, and then put it in a 900°C kiln. After firing, each piece is hand painted and enameled.
