This is a beautiful and unique Nativity - very well crafted! We love the setting with an African-style shelter for the stable, and African Holy Family. We will look forward to displaying this Nativity at Christmas time every year from now on.

This is a fine piece that is not too heavy. I love is the different symbols giving it meaning beyond its decorative value. Its perfect for my living room wall.
