Olive Wood Nativity Carving
Olive wood carved to depict the scene of the birth of Jesus. Nativity features Joseph, Mary, baby Jesus, an angel, a king, and animals. The top of the stable is olive wood bark which gives it a wonderful rustic look. A star is overhead representing the star in Matthew 2 that guided the wise men to the newborn king. Nativity has a small glass enclosure where you will see a small piece of holy land incense.
This very day, in the town of David, there was born for you a Deliverer who is the Messiah, the Lord. Here is how you will know: "you will find a baby wrapped in cloth and lying in a feeding trough." Suddenly, along with the angel was a vast army from heaven praising God: "In the highest heaven, glory to God! And on earth, peace among people of good will!" (Luke 2:11-14 CJB)
