#705 Star Wood Piece Nativity

Acquired 2015

Another vendor, Lavern Howell, of Irving, TX, at the FOTC Convention, had several hand-carved pieces that were eye catching. This particular one stood out to me and, after visiting his table several times, I decided I should add it to my collection. The stable is the large wood star as the backdrop and is the focal point of the piece. Lavern then hand-carved a tall angel - almost the height of the star - and placed her on the dark wood base. The Holy Family, including Jesus in His manger, also adorn the dark wood base. Three traditional animals fill in around the Baby. Purchased, October 2015, $62.75.
