#508 Russian Sculptured Nativity

Acquired 2008

The third set from the Washington D. C. Cathedral given to me by Janine is this elegant hand-painted piece crafted in Russia. The sculptor's name signed on the bottom of the stable is Ingejigemuna. He has beautifully painted, using pastel colors, small-detailed flowers around the cradle and matching pastel flowers around the base of the palm tree stable. Notice the matching pink center flower! Then he carries the pastel color scheme into the robe of Mary. The set includes six pieces with the palm tree removable for storage. It is exquisitely designed and beautifully hand painted. Retailed at $115.00.
