This large Taos Pueblo Fourteen Piece Pottery Nacimiento by Alma Concha includes a very tall angel with lovely designs on her halo, back and wings; a kneeling Mary and Joseph, both with a pair of feathers on their head and each is wrapped in a blanket; and the Christ Child in a traditional cradleboard with designs on the protecting arch. Aside from the open mouth of the angel, all the pieces have no painted eyes or mouths but do show a distinctive pointed nose.
