#445 Small Celtic Nativity

Acquired 2006

A unique and distinctive nativity set with a quiet beauty of all its own, it is roughly hewn and replicates hand-carved stone. This resin Celtic Nativity is based on designs of the carved stonework found throughout much of Ireland. Many of the Christian monks used the stones pieces to illustrate various Bible stories in the course of their missionary work. It is exclusively by Roman, Inc. from their Traditions line. While the pieces look like stone, they are actually resin. A six-piece set, purchased January 2006, 50% off, $4.99.
