"A Cherished Reminder of Our Love"

I am fascinated by the folk-art simplicity of the figures in this set. They perfectly capture the spirit of love and peace that the Nativity represents. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my wife two years ago. She adored it; and now that she has died, I treasure it as a reminder of her and our 40 years of shared love.

"Charming"

This is quite cute and well done. It is small, but quite detailed. The baby comes out of the manger, and the hat on the Joseph figure is removable.
