Made with soft acrylic yarn and polyester stuffing, this handmade 12-piece nativity set includes Joseph, Mary, baby Jesus in the manger, two shepherds, two sheep, three Wise Men, one angel, and one palm tree.
Designed by artist Betsey Cavallo and made from colorful plush felt, this playful set includes nine figures (baby Jesus in a manger, Mary, Joseph, three Wise Men, a donkey, a lamb, and a camel), and the largest figure stands an impressive 15.5 inches tall.
The Nativity scene tradition originated with St. Francis of Assisi in the year 1223 on Christmas Eve. A nativity scene, also called a crib, crèche, or manger scene, refers to any depiction of the birthplace of Jesus. Smaller sets have only a stable with Mary, Joseph, the Baby Jesus, and various farm animals. Larger sets include shepherd boys, lambs, and the Three Wise Men.
Traditionally, the figures in the nativity set are added gradually to recount the historical Christmas story. On December 24th the Baby Jesus is placed in the manger, and the following days the shepherds are added. On January 6th, Three Kings Day, the magi are also added near the manger scene. It is customary to keep the Nativity set on display until February 2nd, which is the end of the Epiphany.

In Val Gardena in Italy nativity figures were already carved out of wood and sold in the 17th century. In our own workshop, about ten wood carvers and painters still produce our nativity figurines today. In addition, we work closely with external sculptors, carvers and painters - all of them resident in Val Gardena and specifically selected by Lignoma.
Our wood carving artists take care to capture the mood of the figures exactly and to make them as expressive as possible. The posture of the individual nativity scene figures is true to life and conveys an inquisitive devotion. Every garment, every drape, every smile, every look and every movement are the result of intensive observation and masterly craftsmanship. In addition to the very natural posture, our wood-carved nativity scene figures also have filigree elaborate clothing. With the fabrics, every fold is authentic and lifelike.
In addition to many other rituals, nativity scenes are also set up at Christmas time. At the center of these are artistic nativity figures as figurative representations around the birth of Jesus in a stable in Bethlehem.

The typical nativity figures, which can be seen in every crib are the baby Jesus, the mother Mary and the father Joseph. Also an ox and a donkey. Optionally, various shepherds with their sheep and shepherd dogs can be added. In addition, the three wise Kings: Jasper, Melchior and Balthazar appear as the wise men of the East. One or more angels complete the crib. But what does the crib really mean Baby Jesus The protagonist of the crib is the baby Jesus. A newborn baby lying in a poor stable as an emergency shelter in the straw of a manger that is probably not very clean. A child who has many names including Jesus, Jesus Christ, Jesus of Nazareth, Yehoshua, Messiah and Savior. As \"the Christ child\" symbolizes God who became human without earthly possessions. His wretched clothing shows his poverty. Of particular importance is his name: Jesus. Because all translations, whether from Latin, ancient Greek or Hebrew, lead to the statement \"God, the Lord helps\" and \"God is salvation. This makes it clear that this child carries on his shoulders the heavy burden of the misery of all humanity and must be the \"long-awaited savior of men\".
The ox and the donkey have been an integral part of figurative nativity scenes since the early days of Christianity. And this although the two animals, despite the mentioned manger, do not appear in Luke's Gospel. Isaiah 1: 3 says \"The ox knows its owner and the donkey its master's manger\". The apparently stupid animals are smarter than humans and with Judaism and Islam they symbolize two faiths. Other interpretations describe the ox as \"pure\" and a symbol of Christianity and the donkey as \"impure\" and the incarnation of all pagan / non-religious peoples. Both animals are so-called pack animals and are intended to make it clear that Jesus also took on the burdens of his fellow human beings..
Probably the widest interpretation of the statues of the nativity is that of the Three Kings. Their presence is linked to numerous stories and legends. Yet neither their names, their origins, their social status, their occupation or their number have been proven. The gospel of Matthew is the basis, in which the sages carrying gold, frankincense and myrrh are mentioned. The names Gaspar, Melchior and Balthasar appeared only at the end of the 9th century. All three are interpreted and considered as kings, wizards, sages, astrologers or scientists representing the continents known at the time, Africa, Asia and Europe. 59ce067264
