Let me introduce you to Mary and Joseph. Mary has quite a svelte figure, considering she just gave birth.
And here is a shepherd and his sheep, hanging out with the donkey.
Out of the whole set, Mr. Donkey is the one who struggles to stand up on all fours. Kind of appropriate for a stubborn donkey, don't you think?
Here they all gaze upon a very tiny little Jesus, all snuggly in his swaddling clothes.
I love to see different cultural interpretations of the nativity. This one is quite a bit different from my other set, but the story the figures tell is just as powerful!
