Depictions of the Christmas story from various cultural perspectives remind us that all people have a way of reflecting on this epic moment. This 5 piece nativity is made of soapstone in Kenya.

Soapstone, or kisii stone (named for the region where it is found), is a soft, smooth stone. Artisans in Kenya use a wet-sanding technique to carve these graphic black and white trinket dishes, dye them with natural dyes, then etch the design using simple hand tools. 

5" high at the tallest point.
