The production of clay figures has a long tradition in Peru. Different figures are made in different areas of Peru. Each region has its own style. If you compare the nativity figures we offer, you will notice the difference.
Just like the other ceramic articles made of clay, they are lovingly hand-painted after modeling. In Catholic South America, Christmas cribs and crib figures are very popular during the Christmas season. With some figures you can clearly see the influence of the indigenous Indians. As in religion in the South American countries themselves, where Catholic elements are often mixed with traditional elements from the Inca period.
