13 Piece Olive Wood Nativity and Manger Set

13 Piece Olive Wood Nativity and Manger Set

Regular price $162.35 Sale

A distinct gift from the Holy Land: Large Nativity Set. The Large Nativity Set is hand made in the Holy city of Bethlehem. The Star of Bethlehem, the same star that guided the Magi to Jesus birth place, adorns the top of the stable.
The scene is set in a stable: Cows, donkeys, and lambs are present along with Mary, Joseph, and the Magi, 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 Nativity is unique and distinct. The figures are not molded. The stable 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
unique and impressive Nativity, a true piece of the Holy Land, can bring to someone that you care for and love.
