The Infant Jesus of the Nativity Creche d’Autun Series is indeed the absolute center of the mystery of the Nativity – the “reason for the season.” This piece – conceived and fashioned with faith in a Western European monastery by religious sisters – is part of an exquisite 11-piece nativity scene (crèche). The Infant Jesus, along with St. Joseph and the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph will make a great start to the crèche which you are keeping for your own family or giving to a loved one or family or church as a Christmas gift. If you acquire but two or three pieces each year, your crèche will soon be complete and ready for display in your home, workplace, office, church or school!
From Western Europe with Love (and Hope and Faith) – The Autun Crèche in Dolomite
The Infant Jesus (with manger) is 2.8 inches long. This and the other 10 pieces are fashioned from dolomite stone and hand-finished by monastic sisters in a monastery workshop in Western Europe. Each sister of the monastic community is assigned a specific task which she completes in prayer as her contribution to the completion of each crèche piece. Every and every piece of the crèche is indeed a labor of love, faith, and hope!
A Crèche of Heirloom Quality for the Christmas Season
The complete Crèche d’Autun will bring beauty, serenity, and meaning to any place where friends, families, and persons of faith gather during the Christmas season. In Europe public places such as offices, banks, restaurants, hospitals, and care facilities put on prominent display a large or small crèche. May your own home, office, workplace, church, and school be blessed by the presence of a crèche that bespeaks with theological and aesthetic integrity the “reason for the season”! This heirloom-quality Crèche d’Autun will be treasured and set up for Christmas for many years to come!
