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.

Inside this Red Gourd Nativity ornament are seven hand-painted ceramic figures representing the birth of Christ; they are Mary, Joseph, and the Baby Jesus, visited by two wise men, a donkey and a cow. Hahaha....don't know where the third wise man is; perhaps he was too shy to have his picture taken. 

  • Gourd Nativities measures approximately: 3-1/4" high x 2" diameter
  • Measurements will vary slighty due to size of the Gourd 

Handmade and fair trade imported from Peru.
