#179 Two by Four Wood Carved Nativity

Acquired 1997

Standing about 18” high, a talented wood craftsman made this unusual wood nativity from crude 2x4 lumber pieces and created an elegant portrayal of the nativity story. It lights up with the light peering from behind Joseph and Mary. This precious set was a Christmas gift to me from Katie for Christmas, 1997. She gave it to me right after Thanksgiving so that I could enjoy it for the holidays. Her gift was just in time for our guests from the Senior group of Centenary Methodist Church as they came to see my collection.
