The Angel of the Nativity Creche d’Autun Series guides us to the central mystery of the Nativity, the newborn baby Jesus. This exquisite piece – fashioned with faith by monastic nuns in their cloistered workshop in Europe – is one of eleven pieces in the eye-catching Autun nativity set (or crèche). This Angel is an essential piece to add, either to the still incomplete Autun crèche you are giving to your own family, or to the Autun crèche you intend as a Christmas gift for another family or for your church. If you acquire two or three pieces year by by year, you will soon have a complete Autun crèche which can be displayed in full display during Christmas time in your home, or in your office, workplace, or church!
The Autun Crèche – Dolomite Stone Fashioned with Faith, Hope and Love
