Read about the Origin of Nativity Sets
Most of our olive wood Nativity sets are carved in the workshop of the premier Nativity artisan of the Holy Land, our dear friend Jeries Facouseh. Jeries' olive wood workshop is on Manger Street in Bethlehem, not far from the site where the Lord Jesus was born. The olive wood Nativities that Jeries turns out are beyond compare. The Holy Land olive wood used to carve his Nativity sets and lovely statues comes from the Galilee region, where the Lord Jesus spent most of His earthly life. When you purchase an olive wood Nativity scene made by Jeries and his team, you get a Nativity set made from wood that grew out of the same soil that the Lord trod and carved just a short distance from the site where He was born. When you combine that with the God given talent of Jeries and his olive wood carvers, you have a Nativity set that is truly beyond compare.
You will also find that we have olive wood Nativity sets where we combine the work of some other olive wood workshops. While we like to exclusively use the Nativity figurines that Jeries carves, we combine those with Nativity stables from some other shops in the area. These olive wood Nativity scenes are not found anywhere else but here at Holy Land Treasures. We also combine some of our olive wood Nativity sets with tealight candle holders and olive wood candlesticks. Every time that we do a combination on our olive wood Nativity sets you save a great deal when compared to purchasing the items seperately.
We also do everything we can to let everyone that views your Nativity set to know that it is an olive wood Nativity scene made in Bethlehem. With each olive wood Nativity set you will receive a "Made in Bethlehem" certificate of authenticity that fits perfectly inside a 4" x 6" frame. Placed on all of our olive wood Nativity sets is also a "Made in Bethlehem" seal.
Our olive wood Nativity sets are not the type of thing that you just enjoy in the Christmas season. Most people leave our olive wood Nativity sets out year round. An olive wood Nativity scene is also a wonderful unique gift idea. Consider a Nativity set for a wedding gift. How many couples start out with a Nativity set, especially a Nativity scene as lovely as the ones we offer here? An olive wood Nativity set for a wedding gift is a gift that will be treated as an heirloom.
