Carved by hand from pinewood, this unique nativity scene is comprised of nine pieces. Jose Canil Ramos depicts the Holy Family with an angel, the Three Kings, a donkey and a cow. The figures appear as calaveras, literally 'skulls,' a popular theme in Guatemala for the Day of the Dead, November 2.
The angel's wings and Joseph's staff are removed for shipping, and cotton felt fabric protects the base of each figurine.
