Hundreds and hundreds of tiny little seed beads make this nativity a set to remember! Every figure is enveloped in little beads, making it truly remarkable to behold, from a skill level as well as a patience level. Perfect for collectors who want a one of a kind set.
The women in the regions around Trujillo have a tenacity that is limitless. Many tell a similar tale, moving from village to village during their youth, as their parents were trying to support the family. Children lost to disease and poor medical care. Most lost their homes and all of their possessions when Hurricane Mitch came through in 1998. They have rebuilt their mud and thatch homes, but are still doing whatever they can to find enough income to support their families and provide an education for their children. They are using soda cans, snack bags, tuno bark, beads, fabric, and newspaper to make nativities. Each set showing the individuality of the woman who makes it.
