12 Piece Olive Wood Nativity set
A distinct gift from the Holy Land: Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Magi, and Barn Animals.
This set is hand made in the Holy city of Bethlehem. This Nativity has a high level of details:
The expressions on the faces are readable and even the animals are textured.
Mary, Joseph, and the Magi are all paying homage to Baby Jesus. The carvings are hand
made from Olive Wood that is native to the Holy Land. Olive Wood has a rich beautiful natural dark grain that contrasts against the lighter color of the wood. The figures are free standing, allowing you to arrange them however is appropriate in your home.
Each set is unique and distinct. The figures are not molded. The scene is not
prefabricated. Every piece is hand crafted and then hand assembled by a Christian Family in the Holy City of Bethlehem. No two Nativities are the same.
All the wood used is Olive Wood that is locally grown in orchards between the Holy Cities of Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Olive Trees do not grow from seeds: they are grafted, like vines. Some of Olive trees are hundreds of years old. The families of artisans that have been producing these carvings have been doing so for hundreds of years. Most people cannot travel to the Holy Land. Let us bring the Holy Land to you. Imagine the joy this special, high detailed set , a true piece of the Holy Land, can bring to someone that you care for and love.
