"Beautiful reminder of meaning of Christmas"

This is truly lovely with detailed workmanship. My parish and those surrounding (L.I.,N.Y.)often have a priest from Ghana. This reminds me of their deep faith and ministry they bring to us. I now will add to year round display in china cabinet of other Nativity scenes, including others from Novica. HIS presence is present.

"Inspiring work of art!"

Beautifully crafted and I will always cherish it. It looks exactly as pictured. I have been looking for a centerpiece for years, and this is perfect. I have shown it to friends and coworkers, and everyone loves it! Thank you, Francis, for your creative mind and talented hands!
