This fantastic hand carved Russian Nativity Set is a wonderful Christmas decoration or gift for collectors of Nativities. This set is intricately hand carved and hand painted by the artist and is made up of Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, a flying angel and the base. All pieces come off the stand for easy storage. Joseph is standing watch over the new babe with a brightly lit lantern in his hand while Mary kneels with her hands crossed over her chest. They baby lies in the hay while the angel flies above observing the Holy Family as they begin their life with their new son. This set is very lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. It is meticulously crafted from linden wood that was dried for almost 2 years before it was carved. Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once it is properly dried. It does not warp, change shape, or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin sets from China. All our Russian statues are hand carved from Linden Wood and no two are ever identical!) This incredible set is hand made in Sergei Posad, Russia and signed by the artist. The set measures just under 6 inches across by 3.5 inches wide by just under 6.75 inches tall.
