This twelve-piece pottery nacimiento was made In August 2019 by Stella Teller of Isleta Pueblo.  It consists of Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus, three Wise Men and six animals—cow, donkey, ram, sheep, lamb, and pig. 

The Baby Jesus is wrapped in a multi-colored blanket and resting with his head on a pillow.  One arm is resting on the blanket and the other by his head. Mary is kneeling with her hands in prayer style, is wrapped in a blanket or manta and wears a turquoise necklace.  Joseph stands and has a blanket wrapped around his shoulders and he wears a turquoise and coral choker.

Each of the Wise Men carries a gift for the Baby Jesus.  One has a pottery canteen, one has a blanket, and one carries a pair of moccasins.  Mary, Joseph, and the Wise Men all wear traditional hide moccasins. Each of the Wise men wears a turquoise choker.
