Nativity Scene

This is my Nativity Scene, it is a tradition in Mexico to put at least one in every house on Christmas time. Marie, my daughter, and I have been doing it for 14 years, since she was 5 years old. We have been painting 3 or 4 wood figures each year since then. Este es mi nacimiento (Belén), es una tradición en México tener por lo menos uno es la época Navideña. Marie, mi hija y yo lo hemos hecho desde hace 14 años, desde que ella tenia 5. Hemos pintado 3 o 4 figuras de madera por año. Here are some close ups so you can enjoy it better. Aqui unos acercamientos para que lo disfruten.
The figures were taken from a Book illustrated by Jane Ray. Las figuras las saque de un libro ilustrado por Jane Ray.

  2. Thanks for your kinds words. I can now finally leave you comments as well as I was "dying" to do, but the Internet in China wouldn't let me. I love your Nativity Scene; it's beautiful and what's even more important, it's become a tradition in your family. I think there's nothing more important than family traditions. Don't you agree? Merry Christmas to you and yours. Vreni
