These delightful wooden Nativity figures bring the joy of the Incarnation to your home in every season.
Simplest shapes of wood are transformed into Joseph and Mary cradling Baby Jesus with a piece of twine to suggest their bond of closeness. Figures are cut from one piece or permanently glued together, except the twine.
The photo provided is just an example of your selected wood variety. Because each is hand-crafted, your piece will look slightly different than the photo. We will surprise you with a special creation that is sure to delight.
These are not an official Catechesis of the Good Shepherd material.
- Figures are finished with oil or varnish.
- Figures can be used as a prayer table statue during Advent and Christmas, or as a personal decoration anywhere you want to remember the joy of Christ's birth.
Each set is handcrafted by woodworker David Gildersleeve in his home workshop in rural Ashtabula County, Ohio. Your Nativity figures should not fall apart, but if they ever do or are less than satisfactory, David provides a lifetime guarantee... limited to his lifetime!
