Product Description

Nativity sets are a wonderful window into the world and this set is no different. Hand formed out of clay, each piece is then hand painted to give them the vibrancy and exuberance of Haitian life. Add in the coconut shell stable, and you're sure to feel the island vibe in your holiday decor. 

Haiti has one of the highest unemployment rates in the Western Hemisphere. While jobs may not be plentiful, old steel drums are. Artisans cut these drums down one side and roll them out flat. They hand sketch the designs, then cut them out with tin snips. Depending on the design, each piece is then hand pounded, hand painted, or both. The environment of the island is completely devastated. Due to deforestation, less than 5% of the land now has tree coverage. Without these trees, birds are also scarce. Through the purchase of this sculpture, coffee trees are planted. As the trees grow, they not only offer income, but also forest protection that is slowly bringing back the birds. Since every piece is made by hand, each one will have slight variations making them one of a kind pieces of art.
