Like I mentioned before, it was made by a woman at my church back in Kalamazoo.
She is a weaver. She weaved all the clothes and dyed all the different wool that she uses.
This is Mary and Baby Jesus. Mary has some beautiful black curls (you can't see very well) and Jesus has some crazy hair going on.
Here's a Shepherd holding a sheep.
I like him because of his very cool coat.
This is my favorite Magi. He's got some major bling going on.
Silk shirt and a little mink on his coat and hat.
Another cool thing about the lady that makes these is that she will incorporate any thing you want into your set. If you got some old jewelry from great grandma she can use it.
(last I heard she not making these anymore)
The detail is very cool. Each camel has a little pouch that rattles with something in it and a pack on their back with blankets. See the little tassels?
He even has the cross on his back (you know the legend that he didn't get that until after he carried Mary pregnant with Christ).
Yes, I'm feeling a little better about Christmas now.
And btw thanks for reading!
