This show brought nativity cribs from all parts of Brazil, in different techniques and styles, beside small-format paintings and sculptures from several artists. The purpose of the crib exhibit was that of divulging popular manifestations within the nativity theme. Works of some important popular artists such as Artur Pereira, Adão, Costinha, Sil, João das Alagoas and Zé Caboclo’s family, were shown. Small formats in sculpture and painting are original and affordable suggestions as artful gifts for Christmas.
For children and adults who enjoy being in a good mood, there are several popular craft toys, panned all over the country, showing in a festive mood the rich art, the color and religiousness of the Brazilian people.
