TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - One of Tucson's beloved nativity scenes is back on display for the holiday season at the Tucson Museum of Art.

The elaborate arrangement of hundreds of miniature figures of a Mexican village is shown in the artwork, along with the story of the nativity.

El Nacimiento is now housed in La Casa Cordova, one of the oldest structures in Downtown Tucson. It was created more than 30 years ago by Mexican folk artist, Maria Luisa Tena.

You can check out the display until March 2016.
