Zambian Paper Mache Nativity Scene

Swahili Modern


  • This African tabletop nativity scene is handcrafted in Zambia by artisan Chrispen. The scene is created from paper mache that is then painted by hand, featuring 10 pieces - Baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, surrounded by three wise men, and 2 shepherds, and 2 lambs.

  • Chrispen is a Zambian artist who specializes in creative village scenes in papier-mâché. He crafts the scenes from wire, then layers recycled paper to achieve the final shape of the figure, before hand-painting each sculpture vibrant colors and patterns.
