Bertilla Toya is a potter from Jemez Pueblo. She digs her clay form the earth. She usually makes nativity ornaments, which we try to keep in stock, and once in a while she makes a standing nativity. This one is affordable. All the figures are painted with traditional Jemez Pueblo pottery designs. There is an angel to watch over the Holy Family. Baby Jesus does not come out of his bed, but he is beautifully painted. The three wise men bring pueblo style gifts, such as a drum and a canteen and a pueblo rattle. The tallest figure is almost three and a half inches tall (8.5 cm.).
