Nativity Scene, Nativity Set
These beautiful nativity boxes are known as Retablos which translates as Altarpiece. Each Retablo measures 7 cm wide with doors closed to 14.5 cm with doors fully open by 7.5 cm high and 3.5 cm deep. The figures are beautifully crafted and are made of a mix of plaster, cooked potato and newspaper and then painted in wonderful vivid colours and lacquered to finish. They look great as a table decoration or on the mantelpiece.
