#310 Foundations Scripture Nativity Set

Acquired 2002

From Abbey Press, October 2002. When I saw this nativity set for the first time, I fell in love with it. It is beautifully detailed in resin and hand-painted in soft colors. The stable is lighted. But what really got my attention is the handwritten Scripture verse on each piece. The verses come from Luke 2, the narrative of the Birth of Christ. Released by Enesco, 2002, the three trees look like tall cactus. Called Foundation, Thoughts to Build On, designed by Karen Hahn. Set of 13 pieces, $144.95.
