In this Nativity Series, Mary is depicted resting and lying on her side after having given birth to Jesus. On her face is a look of radiant and serene holiness. This particular nativity scene figurines is about 6 inches in length and is made from all natural dolomite stone resin.This beautiful piece is hand-crafted at a monastery in France: each sister is assigned a different task to bring the piece to life, and performs that task in the reverent silence of her individual hermitage. During this work each sister is asked to accompany and bless each piece with contemplative prayer. The result is a piece that is bursting with an profound sense of the deep sacredness of the moment that occurred when Christ was brought into this world through the holy vessel of His mother.
A Nativity that Reminds Us of the Holiness of Christmas
Mary in this Nativity invites us into the mystery of her presence among us as well as her loving presence to her child, Jesus. Mary lies down, receiving the gift of rest and respect while all other figurines are sitting, walking and standing around this miracle of life. A special gift for families and nativity collectors, for art collectors, for organizations and businesses who desire a purposeful presence in their communities and for people of all walks of life.
