Masapan Bread Dough Nativity

This charming nativity was made in Calderón, a town near Quito in Ecuador. This town is very well known for its bread dough figures. The dough is made in different colors and each part of the figurine is made using the desired color.

The intricately decorated clothing of the different figures, even the blankets over the animals make this a very colorful and festive iteration of the nativity.
