This is a whimsical "nacimiento" or 10 piece nativity set from Jalisco. It was made by Gerardo Ortega's family in Tónala. The family has a long tradition of making "barro betus" whimsical figures and scenes. Made of clay and painted in bright, vibrant colors.
Our last one is painted in different( but bright Ortega) colors than the one in the photo and is missing the little lamb.
