SKU: 148824
Leonor Quispe gives an Andean setting to the very first Christmas. While the Wise Men wend their way to the stable, an angel hovers above the manger to watch over the Holy Family. Whitewashed homes cluster amid fruit trees and nopal cactus and the cattle and sheep graze peacefully. Quispe works in the traditional art of arpillera (patchwork) to create this cheerful wall hanging. Each tiny figure is crafted in three dimensions and lavishly embroidered.

A display rod can be slipped through an opening at the top.

    This applique wall tapestry is so much more vibrant than the picture represents. The artist's use of color and fabric choice to depict the humble nativity juxtaposed against the affluence of the wise men is excellent. There is a lot of detail in this piece that genuinely reflects the confluence of all creation for the birth of Christ. I am so glad that I purchased it. Thanks to the artist for this wonderful work.
