"A Cherished Reminder of Our Love"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"Shelter"

This came exactly as depicted in the picture. It is cute and is a regional twist on the many biblical passages about God sheltering beneath his wings.
