Manos Amigas Artisan Story

artisan-2_173x219Peru’s native Shipibo tribes are known for their strong cultural heritage, unique cosmology and their unmistakable ceramic arts. Unfortunately, Shipibo villagers also suffer from extreme poverty, and most live without access to basic education and medical care in poor villages along the Río Ucayali, a tributary of the Amazon River. Manos Amigas (Friendly Hands) works with the Shipibo villagers to develop their traditional craft and helps export their vases, sculpture and ornaments to the United States and Europe. Manos Amigas also offers free courses in design, accounting and business marketing and helps artisans identify new markets for their crafts.

Egg Nativity Ornament
from Peru

Egg Nativity Ornament
   Funds 4 meals


A lot of work goes into making this egg nativity; first 5-pieces are shaped by hand from yeso (plaster) and then painted. Next an egg shell is prepared by removing the yoke and painting both the inside and outside of the shell. And finally Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus are glued inside.

This ceramic and egg shell ornament is handmade and painted by artisans from Manos Amigas in Peru. It would look great on your Christmas or make a unique gift to give to someone at Christmas time. 

  • Measures approximately 2-1/4" high x 1-3/4" diameter

Handmade in Peru and fair trade imported.
