A timeless set of nesting dolls, hand painted into characters from the Nativity story. Carving these nesting dolls is a traditional skill in India, and involves whittling with wood from the wrightia tinctoria tree, more often referred to as ivory wood. Keeping traditional skills and eco-friendly handicrafts in mind, the artisans have painted the Angel, King, Shepherd, Joseph, and Mary with natural vegetable dyes.

As each little wooden doll is painted by hand, each one will have his or her own character. There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get from receiving a handmade gift, passed from the palm of a craftsperson into your own, is there?
