The perfect mini nativity for bookshelves, curios, and end tables! Made in Madagascar, this adorable set features wonderful detail and is perfect to keep out year round.
In the area south of Antananarivo, Madagascar, live the people of the Zafinamiry tribe. Legend has it that the Zafinamiry fled the forest to avoid being enslaved. They now number just 25,000. Their once healthy community has just over 100 villages left with few trees remaining due to years of extensive slash and burn. Their livelihood as woodcarvers is in dire jeopardy. These lovely nativities were hand crafted by two sisters and their husbands. The men do the carving and the women do the sanding and finish work.
