A distinct gift from the Holy Land: Palm Tree Nativity. This Nativity is hand made in the

Holy city of Bethlehem. This Nativity is unique, with a palm tree in the front and a pine tree

with stars showing through in the back.

Kneeling in front of the trees are 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 Nativity 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 unique but simple Nativity, a true piece of the Holy Land, can bring to someone that

you care for and love.
