Details

Francis Agbete honors the birth of Christ through his incomparable sculpture art. Working with teak wood, the Ghanaian artisan sculpts a 14-piece nativity scene that includes Mary and Joseph kneeling next to an angel, followed by a camel and a shepherd standing up. A donkey lies down in front of the hut, and on the other side are the three Wise Kings with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Three sheep guard the manger where the Baby Jesus peacefully sleeps.

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.

"Reminder to Pray"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sculpture is unusual, beautiful and a calm reminder to pray about things which are out of our control. I recently sent one as a gift to my sister who has a terminal diagnosis. She placed in a prominent place in her home to remind her that God is always with her.
