Mongolian Silk Nativity

Price: $148.00


This colorful silk nativity is crafted in Mongolia by Dorjkhand, a 60-year-old single mother who cares for her own mother and her grown son. She graduated in 1973 in the only major available at the time, which was doll crafting during the Soviet regime in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Dorjkhand has continued to create paper and clay sculptures for the past 40 years, and is still learning and refining her impressive skills. In this set Mary is holding baby Jesus and the clothing style is from the 13th Century Great Mongol Empire. Joseph and the Wisemen are about 6" high, but the shepherds in this set are small, because the shepherds in Mongolia are children.
