This hand-carved and smooth-to-the-touch nativity set includes our four central pieces plus a cow, donkey, kneeling sheep and standing sheep - each beautifully handcrafted from the finest olive wood
Handmade with love in Jordan ♥
The Olive Wood Nativity is made by artisans with Holy Land Designs, an organization focused on loving, empowering, and employing deaf, disabled, and disadvantaged individuals in their community of Amman, Jordan. Located in the hills of the ancient Roman city of Philadelphia, their workshop currently trains and supports around 20 full-time artisans. These artisans express their creative talents through traditional mediums like stone, wood, and sand. Holy Land Designs helps these middle-eastern families thrive in the culturally rich, yet often-harsh world of their surroundings.
