This contemporary wooden indoor manger scene is carved in the Manger Street Olivart carving shop of our dear friend Jeries Facouseh, the master Nativity artisan of the Holy Land. The wooden manger scene features a 13 piece set of figurines that are carved in contemporary, modern art style. (5" average height) The set includes the Baby Jesus, the Virgin Mary, Joseph, 3 wise men, 1 shepherd and 5 stable animals (Including a camel). The lovely wooden Nativity stable features the star of Bethlehem and an angel that is over the center of the manger scene. The tealight candle holder that comes with this contemporary wooden Nativity scene is made by ceramic artisan Peter Canavati, just a few feet from the Church of Nativity.
This wooden Nativity set is made from prunings of Holy Land olive trees. This environmentally friendly process preserves the life and health of these sometimes centuries old olive trees. The Holy Land olive wood used to carve this contemporary wooden Nativity set is from the Galilee region, where the Lord Jesus spent much of His earthly life. The factory of Jeries Facouseh, where this wooden manger scene is carved, is about a 10 minute walk from the site where the Lord Jesus was born.
