Jim's Nativity 1

One of my favorite subjects in paper sculpture is the nativities or creches. I have been making paper nacimientos since I was a kid back home in Puerto Rico.


This is my latest creation. It was commissioned by a collector in Virginia, James L Govan - author of the book "Art of the Creche: Nativities from Around the World". You can get the book at


More paper nativities at, select "nativities"
