    Olive Wood Carving of Moses with Serpent Staff and Ten Commandments from Jimmy's Bazaar
    Benefitting Mercury One

    Bid to own a unique olive wood carving straight from Jerusalem!

    This beautifully intricate carving depicts Moses and the Ten Commandments. The base is 8" x 8.5" and the height is 17".
    The olive tree is an ever green tree that grows in the Holy Land. It has numerous branches and can live for up to 2000 years. The manufacturing of religious and artistic artifacts from the wood of this tree has long been a tradition among the natives of Bethlehem. Olive wood figures are only made out of male olive trees. The female trees are responsible for bearing the fruit 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 ready to be used for carving figures. http://jimmysbazaar.net
