Elizabeth Manygoats is a Navajo potter who lives in Arizona on the huge Navajo reservation. She is unusual because she makes bas relief tiles. This one shows a Navajo style nativity. It could be displayed on an easel.The kneeling figures on the left are Mary and Joseph, wrapped in traditional blankets. The standing figures on the right are the three wise men, also wrapped in blankets. The night sky above the desert mountains is full of tiny stars. The main star is of pottery over the bed where Baby Jesus lies. A raised textured edge frames the scene. The tile is four inches tall (10 cm.).
