#743 Gray-White Laser Cut

Acquired 2016

While visiting the Sedona area on March 2, 2016, I asked Bob to allow enough time to visit the Chapel of the Holy Cross in the red rocks of Sedona. I remembered their lovely basement gift shop and the many nativities that they carry. Having not been there for a few years, (two to be exact!), I wanted to go back. We got there about 30 minutes before closing and I found three nativities that caught my eye and needed to go home to my collection.This Roman, Inc. five-piece set is made from plywood, and then wash finished in a darker gray and laser cut with the elegant star-studded lattice design in the sparkling lighter gray. Mary is holding the Christ Child, and Joseph is in prayerful adoration. The three kings humbly reach out their sacrificial gifts to the Babe. My purchase date, March 2, 2016. Purchase price, $89.50.
