This beautiful hand crafted olive wood Nativity scene is made from original olive wood from Bethlehem! This is the perfect gift for Christmas. It will be a great addition to your Christmas tree decoration and will bring joy to whomever encounters the light that beams through its curved edges.
Each year the olive branches are pruned from olive groves for all of the carvings – trees are never cut down for the wood. The branches are dried for a year or more before the wood is ready for use. Great care is taken in selecting, drying and carving, to showcase the beautiful grains of each piece. Small cracks, imperfections and grain variation are part of their natural appeal.
