The Bethlehem Olivart workshop of Nativity artisan Jeries Facouseh, is on Manger Street, not far from the site where the Lord Jesus was born. Because this lovely olive wood Nativity set is hand carved, and with no two pieces of naturally beautiful Holy Land olive wood being exactly the same, each of these exquisite wooden Nativity scenes are unique.
The 15 piece set of hand carved wooden Nativity figures include the Baby Jesus, the Virgin Mary. Joseph, 3 wise men, 1 shepherd and 4 animals. This lovely carved olive wood Nativity scene displays beautifully with the stable. The Nativity stable is crafted from blocks of olive wood and features a palm tree and the star of Bethlehem. Another interesting note concerning all of the lovely olive wood Nativity scenes that are carved by Jeries. For each wooden Nativity set Jeries uses Holy Land olive wood from the Galilee region, where the Lord Jesus spent much of His earthly life. This means that this lovely wooden manger scene is made near the site of the Nativity (the Lord's birth) from olive wood that grows from the same ground He once trod.
