december brings...

Hope. Promise. Starlight.

Happy December!

The Nativity pictured was molded from clay by a Mexican folk artist and colored in natural earth pigments.
I just love their expressions of fear and awe.
So human. So mysterious. So Divine.

See more in Elwin Wood's Etsy shop.


  1. These remind me of Indian Storytelling Dolls. Not sure if they are but nonetheless they are telling an amazing story! :)

  2. MyStory~ I quite agree! I just love their expressions! I will have to look into Indian Storytelling dolls...

    Thanks, Yiota!

  3. Me too... I've been searching high and low for the RIGHT Nativity, and this one has come closest so far. The expressions and limbs are everything.

  4. I love this nativity-- we have one that my mother gave to Grady on his first Christmas, and she sends us a different set of figures every year. These are so different and artistic.

    Looks like you have been having a great time lately!

  5. Indeed! But I've been missing your posts...
