Description

Olive Wood Carving of Nativity Scene from Jimmy's Bazaar Bid to own a unique olive wood carving straight from Jerusalem! The olive tree is an ever green tree that grows in the Holy Land, it has numerous branches and can survive up to 2000 years. The manufacturing of religious and artistic artifacts from the wood of this popular tree has long been a tradition among the natives of Bethlehem. Olive wood figures are only made out of the male Olive trees. The female trees are responsible for baring the fruits while the male trees are unable to do so. The wood is dried for a long period of time, ranging from months to years before the wood is used to carve figures. This amazing carved set by Jimmy's Bazaar depict the nativity scene. The crèche, decorated with a carved palm tree and shooting star, is the setting for Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus in the manger, 3 kings/wise men, 2 shepherds, a shepherd boy, a camel, a donkey, a cow, and 3 sheep. Each figure is carved with beautifully intricate detail! This is a heirloom that will be cherished for generations! The crèche measures 19" x 19" x 19". The tallest kings/wise men are 10.5". http://jimmysbazaar.net
