The King Balthazar of the Nativity Creche d’Autun Series presents his gift of myrrh to the newborn Messiah, Jesus, the King of the Jews. This impressive piece – fashioned with faith in a monastery workshop in Europe by cloistered nuns – is but one part of an amazing 11-piece nativity set (or crèche). The King Balthazar, along with King Caspar and King Melchior, will be a most welcome addition to the incomplete Autun crèche for your own family, or to the crèche you are giving as a Christmas gift to a loved one, another family, or your church. By acquiring two or three pieces each year, you will soon have all 11 pieces – an exquisite crèche on display during Christmas in home, workplace, office, church, or school!
A Crèche Fashioned OF Dolomite, but WITH Faith, Hope and Love
The King Balthazar stands 4.7 inches tall. All 11 pieces of the dolomite Autun crèche are created from dolomite stone and resin and are then individually completed by the nuns in their monastic workshop in Western Europe. Each nun has an assigned task which she prayerfully performs on each piece of every crèche. Every crèche is nothing but a pure labor of faith, hope, and love, if there ever was one!
The Autun Crèche offers Heirloom Quality for Many Christmases to Come
The entire 11-piece Crèche d’Autun enhances every Christmas season with beauty, serenity, and depth for all who are gathering – friends, families, and persons of faith. During the Christmas season in Europe, public displays of a small or large crèche can be viewed everywhere. May your own home, workplace, school, office, and church enjoy the graced presence of such a beautiful crèche which bespeaks, with theological and artistic integrity, the one and only real “reason for the season”! This King Balthazar and the entire 11-piece Crèche d’Autun is a gift of heirloom quality that will be treasured for many, many Christmases to come!
