Dominican nativities

Come and see the works of art created by artisans Roosevelt Mendez and Pedro Mendez with their antique wood-carved statues in the style of 1800s woodwork.

Roosevelt Mendez gained international recognition when he won the first prize at the International Nativities Scene Contest, Mostra 100 Presepi, celebrated in Rome in 2010. He is presenting several creations in small and medium-sized formats along with a collection by maestro Pedro Mendez during the Christmas Bazaar organized by the Association of Diplomatic Ladies of the Dominican Republic on Sunday, 11 December starting at 10am at Casa de Espana. More will be available at the Artisan Fair organized by the Ministry of Culture for 14-18 December at the Columbus Park, next to the Cathedral of Santo Domingo in the Colonial City.
