Story Behind the Art:
Born in Chichicastenango, Guatemala, Jose Canil learnt his craft from his father. 'When I was younger he would only allow me to sandpaper a piece, and as I got older he would let me paint too. It wasn't until I was older that he'd finally let me carve the wood. I remember well the first piece I ever did completely on my own: an angel. I put it among the things my father took to the market to sell, and then I lost track of it! I hope it got sold to someone who appreciated it because at the time I was only an apprentice.'

    This is a beautiful nativity. It is well made with lots of detail. I have visited Chichicastenango and was happy to find a nativity made by someone from the area. It was carefully packaged and arrived quickly and in perfect condition.

Questions & Answers

  • I received this set and we love it, BUT I don't get how it is ten pieces as I only count 9. Unless they are counting the wings, staff or something that is connected but can be separated to make the TEN pieces. Can you list the ten pieces? Also we read on the site that there would be a paper with background culturally on the artist or this work. NEITHER was packed in our set. We had hoped to receive it as I had trouble printing it from the website, it comes up as a pop-up and hard to then print.

    • I apologize for the confusion. The nativity set does only have 9 pieces; this was an error in our product description. You will be contacted by Customer Care shortly.
