This contemporary olive wood Nativity set is hand carved in Bethlehem in the workshop of the Holy Land's premier Christian artisan, our dear friend Jeries Facouseh. This lovely olive wood Nativity comes with a 13 piece set of contemporary (faceless) Nativity figurines (5" average height) and a Nativity stable that plays "Silent Night" when the music box on the back of the stable is wound. The workshop of Jeries Facouseh, where this contemorary olive wood Nativity set is made, is on Manger Street in Bethlehem, about a 10 minute walk from where the Lord Jesus was born.

Each olive wood Nativity set that we sell has its' own unique character, being hand carved, and with no two pieces of Holy Land olive wood being exactly the same. This contemporary Nativity set and all of our Nativities are made from Holy Land olive wood that was pruned from olive trees, and no trees were destroyed in the process.

The 13 piece set of contemporary Nativity figurines includes the Baby Jesus, manger (His bed), the Virgin Mary, Joseph, 1 shepherd, 3 wise men and 5 stable animals including a camel. The beautiful Nativity stable is made from blocks of Holy Land olive wood and displays this contemporary Nativity scene beautifully.
This contemporary olive wood Nativity set makes an ideal Christmas gift and a unique gift for a Nativity collector. You don't have to use this Nativity scene just at Christmas though as this lovely set makes ideal Christian gifts year round.
