Elongated Holy Family

Elongated Holy Family

This funky depiction of the Holy Family is characterized by the elongated appearance of the figurines.

Mary is tenderly holding the baby Jesus. Both Mary and Joseph are gazing upon Jesus, thus bowing their heads. Matching the elongated lines of the other figures the Llamas are seated on their hind legs. Jesus and Joseph are wearing matching knitted hats, typical for the High Andes.
