At Christmas in Mexico the manger scenes are elaborate and done with much care. Real plants, flowers and moss are used in the scenes. At this time it is wonderful to see who is offering what kind of plants, brought from the hillsides to sell. The woman who was here, took a break and left a painting subject for Sergio. The moss had been scraped in slabs from the earth, separated with newspaper. Small succulents were grouped by type. Perfect composition.
