The donkey of the Nativity Creche d’Autun Series partakes in the divine mystery and gazes peacefully on the newborn Jesus, the King of the Jews, the Messiah. This simple piece – fashioned with faith by cloistered nuns in their European monastery workshop – is one of 11 pieces in the charming Autun nativity scene (or crèche). The donkey, along with the ox and sheep, will be a fitting addition either to your still partial Autun crèche for your own family, or to the crèche which you intend as a Christmas gift for a loved one, for another family, or for your church. When, year by year, you acquire two or three pieces, you will soon have completed the entire 11-piece Autun crèche, now ready to be displayed in full during the Christmas season at home, workplace, office, church, or school!
The Autun Crèche – Composed of Dolomite, Made with Faith, Hope and Love
The Donkey is 3.5 inches in length. All eleven pieces of the Autun crèche are composed of dolomite stone and resin which is then individually finished by the sisters in their monastic workshop in Western Europe. Each sister has one specific task which she prayerfully accomplishes on each and every piece. The Autun crèche is then without a doubt a transparent labor of love, hope, and faith!
The Autun Crèche – An Heirloom for Many Christmases to Come
The 11-piece Crèche d’Autun will enhance every Christmas season with scriptural depth, beauty, and serenity for all who gather – friends, families, and persons of faith. In Europe during Christmas time, public displays of a small or large crèche are in abundance, to be seen everywhere. May your home, workplace, school, office, and church be graced with a crèche of this quality, a crèche which bespeaks with theological and artistic integrity the original “reason for the season”! This Donkey, with the entire Crèche d’Autun, is a gift of such heirloom quality that it will be treasured and preserved for many Chistmases to come!
