This 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. Not just a Christmas




decoration, but a work of art. This set has the highest level of detailed carvings that we offer:




The expressions on the faces are readable, the clothing hangs realistically off the figures, and




even the animals are textured.




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 Nativity sets 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. Grace your




home with this unique and impressive Nativity, a true piece of the Holy Land, can bring to someone




that you care for and love.
