Cochiti Nativity Set by Elizabeth Trujillo, c. 1990

$750.00

This charming set is by former Indian Market blue ribbon winning potter Elizabeth Trujillo. Nativity sets or Nacimientos as they are know in northern New Mexico, originated perhaps when Helen Codero made the first one in 1972. The best source of information on Nacimientos is the wonderful 1979 book by that name by Guy and Doris Monathan, reprinted by Avanyu Publishing and Al Anthony in 1990. Notice Elizabeth's characteristically lovely painting and fine lines. Simple, charming and spiritual.
