#729 O Tanenbaum Tower

Acquired 2015

We can experience the wonder of the night Christ was born with this gorgeous Nativity Tree Tower. Made from a highly detailed carving, the artist's eye missed nothing when creating this colorful masterpiece. The tower displays Mary and Joseph, the three wise men bearing gifts, the humble shepherd holding a lamb, the beautiful angel heralding the birth of the Savior, even the serene animals near their manger where the Christ Child lies. The tip top of the tower is the Star of Bethlehem with rays of light streaming down to the angel and all the way down the backside of the tower. Made from resin about 20” high and 6” in diameter. Purchased December 7, 2015, from Traditions Mail Order catalog. Purchase price, $45.
