Details

Thomas Kumah Nedjoh celebrates the birth of Jesus with this uniquely African nativity scene, featuring 14 pieces. Accompanied by shepherds and farm animals, the Holy Family receives the visit of the three Wise Men, regarded as kings. From right to left, the first king bears a stool throne as symbol of Jesus' majesty, the second king proffers a gourd filled with gold, and the third king brings a state sword for oath-swearing. The gentleman bearing a staff with a star is the spokesperson for the kings. Nedjoh carves each ofram wood piece by hand with sublime detail to create a moving and endearing scene.

"This is now a cherished heirloom"

An exquisitely carved, beautiful African wood Nativity Set for my Pastor who loves Christmas. Each piece had a soft feel to it as if handled like glass. The detailed carvings gave each piece identity and character as if coming to life. I am so happy with this creation and my congratulations to Thomas Kumah Nedjoh, the artist, putting his whole heart and soul into each piece.

"This nativity is a precious piece in my collection"

This nativity is a very very refined work that well describes the religious sense associated with African traditions. It is also aesthetically beautiful both for the beauty of the wood used and, above all, for the skill of the artisan.
