Nativity, Barro Blanco, miniature [sold]

[sold] An incredibly tiny, ten piece Nativity set in white clay - or barro blanco, by celebrated artisan Enedina Vasquez Cruz. Each piece is sensitively detailed, with curls of hair and emotive facial expressions. And no piece is much larger than a dime. Terra-cotta highlights are achieved with a slip of darker colored clay - a technique pioneered by Enedina and her sister Angelica. An amazing and unique miniature nativity set. Oaxaca, Mexico.
