Wilson Romero, Cochiti-Dine
Carved from sandstone and found stone Wilson Romero's nativity set would make an amazing family heirloom or addition an already rich tradition. 14 figures in all including the infant Christ in his manger, Mary, and Joseph who are about 4 1/2" and 4 3/4" tall respectively. The three elders attend, standing about 6" tall. A joyful angel watches over the miracle and is about 4 1/4" tall. A gathering of animals, that include a Mountain-lion, an Owl, an Eagle or Hawk, a Bear, a Mole and a pair of Bison all carved of different found stones, bless the scene. The mountain lion is the largest at about 4" long and 1 1/2' tall. The raptors are both about 2" tall. The well fed bear is 1 1/4" tall and 2" long. The mole is 2" long and 1/2" tall. The larger of the two bison is about 2" tall and 2 1/2" long, the smaller is 1 1/4" tall and 2" long. Truly a unique interpretation of the classic tradition. Addition shipping charges may apply.
