This beautiful wooden statue of an intricately designed Nativity scene carved from maple wood features Mary holding a cradle and Joseph holding a lantern as they look upon The Lord, Jesus in the cradle Mary holds as he opens his eyes after his miraculous birth. A kneeling shepherd with a lamb sit beside them and a donkey and bull look on from behind them beyond a fence. Behind the animals, a finely detailed tree stands tall and two cherubs rest upon a cloud beside it with one playing a flute and the other singing hymns, completing the majestic scene. This Raffaelo Crib statue is hand carved and painted with oil based paint in a beautiful variety of blended and lightly textured colors. The design also features gold plated accents painted along the edges of many of the lines throughout the sculpture. This beautifully carved statue is the perfect gift for a special Christian or Catholic follower in your life or as beautiful décor for the home or church.
