12-Piece Olive Wood Nativity Set
Children love to hear the nativity story about the little baby born in a stable so long ago, and setting a nativity scene brings the story of that very first Christmas back to life. Who better qualified to recreate the magic than the people of Bethlehem – the very place where it all happened?
Mature olive trees are pruned annually, then it takes two years to treat and dry the oil-rich wood before it’s ready to make our beautiful Nativity Set. After this, the figures are hand-carved by a small team of skilled craftsmen who use traditional skills passed down from father to son – even the manger is created by hand – so each piece is an original with its own subtle variations.
With such care and craftsmanship involved, you can imagine how long they take to carve – and that’s why we only have a limited number of these special handmade sets available. They say that you get what you pay for, and this is an heirloom in the making, destined to be enjoyed for many years as it’s passed down through the generations.
