A craft handed down from father to son, from generation to generation: hand sculpting olive wood is a unique form of art native to the Holy Land. The process of cutting and carving involves many stages and skills, the softness of the wood and the variation in color allow real craftsmanship to shine through.
This beautifully detailed and fully hand-carved Nativity is created by Zacharia and his brothers, some of the most well respected olive wood craftsmen in the Land. The family workshop is located in Bethlehem, and the tradition of olive wood carving is being passed down in the family for generations. Zacharia and his brothers adopt a fully manual approach to their work of shaping the Gospel Stories in Olive Wood, paying attention to every detail. Many hours of work have been put into this Nativity, turning it into an absolute masterpiece of the highest quality.
It will be a true pleasure to display this Nativity in your home during the Christmas season.
