Calderon Bread Dough Nativity
Ecuador


Bright folk art Nativity from the community of Calderon, Ecuador, is handcrafted in painted bread dough.

Bread dough folk art in Ecuador has its origins in Roman Catholic and Indian traditions. For the Day of the Dead in early November, families honor deceased relatives by placing simple bread dough figurines by their grave sites. In some regions, figures are made for the Procession of the Christ Child, a Christmas festival, and Godparents Day before Lent.
