for A Small Nativity by Aquiles Nazoa and Ana Palmero Cáceres
Well known for the charm, humor, and beauty of his writing, Aquiles Nazoa was one of Venezuela's most famous poets. Here he delightfully retells the Christmas story, while young Venezuelan artist and designer Ana Palmero Cáceres provides enriching, marvelous paintings laden with symbolism and pathos. Presented as a series of altar pieces and richly decorated with gold leaf, Cáceres's paintings use symbols and animals native to the Americas as frames for the story of how simple, humble Mary and Joseph sought a place for the birth of their son.
