In order to make known the creative diversity of the Mexican producers and craftsmen, and to pay homage to those who have shown true appreciation for the traditional arts, the National Museum of Popular Cultures presents the exhibition: Come and See, by Celia Chávez de García Terrés presenting about 200 nativity scenes from different states of the country.

Celia Chávez has toured across very different roads to locate men and women who craft the figures of the scenes with clay, palm, chocolate, wood, tin, copper, plumb, evergreen flower, totomoxtle (corn leaves), china paper, glass, avocado seed, and other materials.

In this exhibition we can discover the faces of this tradition, the diversity, sweetness, and beauty in it.
