Paperback: 93 pages
Publisher: Univ of New Mexico Pr; 2 edition (August 1990)
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.
