Galapagos Nativity

A friend sent me this picture with the following explanation:

“It is from one of the Galapagos islands. Only a small percentage of the islands are inhabited and so much of the time we were in the midst of only vegetation and wildlife. Then we would get to an inhabited island and find a rich concentration of artisans on what amounts to a speck of land in the midst of the vast seas. Even the buildings were works of art. Unique beyond imagining. This came from a studio shop which featured some of the most beautiful carvings I have ever seen.”

    I’m beginning to see a similarity in characters carved. Great works.

    I love the brown faces – probably more accurate than most of our nativity scenes!
