~ Life Size Surprise...~






Being very fond of old religious collectibles, I was so excited when my daughter took a little trip to Dallas and found this wonderful old Nativity set. Mary is about 4 ft tall so that will give you some idea of the size of these pieces. Were they a part of a Church set up? Who made them? They seem to be made of paper mache covering old spray foam insulation. Cracked and crazed and shabbily painted-just the way we like them...
