Regular price $74.99 Sale

A distinct gift from the Holy Land: The Musical Nativity. The Musical Nativity is
hand made in the Holy city of Bethlehem. The Star of Bethlehem, the same star that guided
the Magi to Jesus? birth place, winds the musical mechanism hidden in the roof of the
Nativity. Silent Night plays while the Star of Bethlehem slowly turns.
The scene is set in a stable: Horses, 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 entire scene is glued
together.
Each Musical 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 that this Musical Nativity, a true piece of the Holy Land, can bring to
someone that you care for and love.
