UnBridled Wonder 9 piece Nativity
The sentiments of each are with each figure in the store.
Baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph
In a trough, covered with a cowhide, in the place of baby Jesus is the kids' little brother, proudly wearing a star as the good "Sheriff". Mary is nurturing and Joseph has his carpenters box with him and respectfully approaching Jesus.
The Angel Gabriel
Wearing her sparkling finest, this angel is playing the fiddle and wearing her lasso rope as wings. A little mouse is her audience.
With a cane pole and the Texas Star, this young shepherd girl is cute with her head looking through the hayloft opening.
The Shepherd Brothers
Like any good western shepherd, they have lassoed the lamb. Dressed in bandanna headwear, (the baby draping a cloth diaper!) the baby shepherd is wearing John Deere boots!
Wiseman with Gold
Panning for gold and presenting it to Jesus, this young cowboy is also presenting his pony tacked in its finest, (complete with a star studded saddle pad) to equal his best rodeo shirt and cross belt buckle. As an added gift, he is offering his favorite Teddy Bear and an extra wrapped package on the back side. He leaves it up to you to decide what's inside!
Wiseman with Furr
Wearing his rodeo best shirt and hat, this young wiseboy is holding his cross, and presenting his new puppy to Jesus. The gift box is wrapped in a music sheet, "We Three Kings".
Wise boy with Chicks
This young Wiseboy wearing his "rodeo best", with his duster draped as his cape, is presenting his first born! (More accurately, his first "hatched!"
The Barn Creche
Do you see the Cross?
Regardless of the artistic medium, Kathy Fincher's artwork ALWAYS shares an inspirational story. This is especially true for the Mama says... and UnBridled Wonder nativities with DEMDACO.
In an intimate and unique way, these Living Christmas stories share the message of Christmas endearingly expressed through the eyes of children. They also offer many lessons. The Mama says...children are wearing costumes from their church. The UnBridled Wonder children are wearing "treasures" collected from around the barn.
The Mama says...(R) Nativity, and the western UnBridled Wonder Nativity tell the individual stories of each Biblical character on their bases. All relating scriptures, New Testament and Old, are listed with each individual figure so you can learn how the birth of Jesus is foretold in the Old Testament. Even the role of the animals!
Consistent with Fincher's work, there is a personal life application lesson for each piece. For the Mama says... nativity, the lesson is from the heart of a Mother; "May my child, like Mary, nurture a servants heart." The UnBridled Wonder characters offer a prayer to Jesus; "Dear Jesus, like Joseph, may I listen to you and not follow the herd."
The Mama says...collection has a heart hidden on each child, for your mother's heart is ALWAYS with you. (You couldn't get rid of it if you tried!) The UnBridled Wonder Collection has a hidden cross on each child.
The artist has two recommendations for parents.
* Begin your Christmas season by pulling out each figure individually and read their story. If your children are old enough, look up and read aloud all scriptures. And together repeat the life application prayer.
* Place a magnifying glass with the nativity. Don't miss the details like the safety pin on the back of the Mama Says... Angel Gabriel, or the details of the bandannas on the UnBridled Wonder Nativity.

The Nativity Collection
As displayed in the artists studio
The Mama Says... nativity is displayed year-around in Kathy Fincher's studio. The Creche is designed so the beams carry the light in all directions from the source of the manger.
Holy Family and Angel Gabriel
The Virgin Mary… believes the angel’s promise… and gives birth to God’s son, Jesus, not in a mighty palace, but in a lowly stable. The Virgin Mary delivers a perfect child…Jesus… who in turn…delivers us. Mama prays…her child, like Mary, will nurture a servant’s heart. Luke 1:26-56, 2:6-7, 37-38 Matthew 1:18
