HOLIDAY GREETINGS! Nativities from Iberoamerica

Chess set with facing Nativities, on exhibit at Great Masters of Iberoamerican Folk Art
Every year at holiday time I get out our collection of creches, or nativity scenes, that we have accumulated over the years.  They come from all over the world and often have memories of travels associated with them. We have no new nativities this year.  However, I have photos of some amazing pieces currently on exhibit at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County in a terrific show, Great Masters of Iberoamerican Folk Art. They are among more than 1500 items in an exhibit of crafts ranging from clay and wood to fibers and textiles. The exhibit is from the collection of Fomento Cultural Banamex.

             I am looking forward to celebrating the holidays with family and friends.

                     HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!
