This beautiful handmade table top nativity set is from Kenya. It is cut and carved from a single olive branch showcasing the grain of each piece. The three pieces are attached together using sisal rope, which is also used to swaddle the baby Jesus. When closed it is meant to resemble an African hut, but can also be interpreted to look like a pencil (great gifts for a writer or a teacher!). Each nativity is as unique as the branch it is carved from--no two look alike.
Materials: Olive wood, sisal
Size: Whole piece is approximately 8" tall and approximately 6" in diameter. Size varies depending on the size of the branch used.
