Hand Carved Nativity Set
Artisans at a fair trade cooperative in Indonesia have whittled each of these nativity figurines by hand, painting each one with their own colours and character. As each piece is separate, you can set them up however you like, perhaps around the painted arch, crowned with the Christmas star?
All nativity sets tell a story, but this one all tells an extra tale. In a world where so much is mass produced, it’s important to keep traditional handicraft skills alive. The methods used to create this nativity have been passed down for generations, and are just as important to the livelihoods of families as they always have been.
