Here’s your Spanish word of the day: Alfarero or potter.
Today I am also sharing the second triptych of the series. Today’s portraits of Nestor, the young potter who specialises in making these beautiful and unique ceramic Nativity scenes. I first shared with you a picture of Nestor and his creating last year with the post Guatemalan Maya Nacimientos.
Also I shared with you that, during early December, in Guatemala people begin putting up their Nacimientos (Nativity Scenes); a tradition that was brought to Guatemala by Santo Hermano Pedro de Betancourt and then spread to the rest of American continent.
One important aspect of nacimientos is that baby Jesus is missing from the scene since his actual birthday is on December 25th. In the mean time, María and José begin asking posada, the quest of shelter; these celebrations are known in Guatemala as Posadas.
