The Niño de Atocha is a representation of baby Jesus prevalent in Spanish cultures. He is very decorated, carrying a basket, a walking staff, and a drinking gourd while wearing a traveler’s cape decorated with a scallop shell, the emblem of the pilgrimage to Saint James in Spain. In the guise of a humble pilgrim, the Niño de Atocha reminds us of Christ’s humanity as a part of his divine nature.
