The figures of this relatively crude nativity are carved out of wood. They are set in a hut woven out of twigs . This nativity includes the Holy Family and an angel.
This holy family is made from sinamay, a woven fiber using the stripped fiber of the abaca tree. Artisans weave the fine strands of fibers into fabrics with a wooden loom. The result is this very delicate almost etherial representations of the holy family.
