This is also the season of posadas (shelter quest) and nacimientos (nativity scenes) in Latin America, Guatemala and more specifically Antigua Guatemala.

Don’t you wish you can have one these adorable Guatemalan nacimientos (nativity scenes) in your own home for the next Christmas?
In my never ending quest to share with you all the different artistic manifestations from Guatemala that I come across I preset you this video clip entitled Tejido audiovisual de Guatemala by Julio Dávila also known as VJ Sine. Julio shared this video at TEDxUFM, short for TED (Technology Entertainment Design) x= independently organized TED event and UFM (Universidad Francisco Marroquín). If you’re interested in looking at photos and reading a collective summary of the event, follow the white rabbit to TEDxUFM slide show. In the mean time, enjoy the video below.
