My nativity from Spain

This is my little nativity from Spain. It's all made of gold inlay(?). Not sure how to spell that one. The two edges fold in flat against the middle section. It really is much more my mom's style than mine! But it's so unique, I'm glad to add it to my collection. The blue in the back right is one my mom picked out for me when she was visiting my friend in Amsterdam a few years ago.

Sara, this type of metalwork is called Damascene and the town of Toledo in Spain is famous for it. If you Google it you can find out a lot more info.
