9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By M. J. Smith VINE VOICE on June 10, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is a major contribution to religious folk art - in this case folk art arising in the late 1950's among Southwest Indian artists. The book includes a comprehesive introduction to nativity scenes then highlights 17 artists from 10 tribes/pueblos. The book is trilingual - German, Spanish and English so there is less text than the book size would imply.
The choice of Nacimientos to show is excellent - a very wide range all of excellent quality. Examples: Figures dressed as plains Indians, unadorned clay figures, Pueblo Indians etc. Details are well described so that mesquite wood, ollas, jugs etc. are not ignored. The collection also includes a single piece nativity set made by an unknown child. Excellent book.
