A distinct gift from the Holy Land: Mary holding Baby Jesus. This statue is hand made in
the Holy city of Bethlehem. Mary is motherly holding Jesus in her arms. A truly maternal loving
scene. This statue is made from one solid piece of Olive Wood symbolic of the love for Jesus and
family. The statue is lovingly hand carved out of 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 statue is unique, distinct, and a work of art unto itself. The figures are not molded.
Instead the entire statue is hand carved by a Christian Family in the Holy City of Bethlehem. No
two 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 distinctive statue that embodies the spirit of family and love.
