The King Melchior of the Nativity Creche d’Autun Series presents his gift of frankincense to the newborn baby Jesus – the “reason for the season.” This lovely piece – designed and fashioned with faith by cloistered nuns in their monastery workshop in Western Europe – is part of an exquisite 11-piece nativity set (or crèche). The King Melchior, along with King Caspar and King Balthazar, will make a great addition to the crèche, either for your own family, or for a loved one, another family, or your church as a Christmas gift. By acquiring two or three pieces each year, your crèche will soon be finished and on prominent display in your home, workplace, office, church, or school!
A Dolomite Crèche Fashioned with Faith, Hope and Love
The King Melchior stands 3.5 inches high. All 11 pieces in the dolomite Autun crèche are composed dolomite stone and resin and then completed by hand by cloistered nuns in their monastic workshop in Europe. Each nun completes an assigned task which she prayerfully performs on each crèche piece. Every piece of every crèche can only be an unalloyed labor of faith, hope, and love!
The Autun Crèche – of Heirloom Quality and Made for the Ages
The complete Crèche d’Autun will enhance every Christmas season with beauty, serenity, and depth for families, friends, and persons of faith. In Europe public displays of a small or large crèche are visible everywhere: in offices, banks, restaurants, hospitals, care facilities, and many other places. May your own home, workplace, office, school, and church be graced with the presence of a nativity scene which bespeaks, with theological and aesthetic integrity, the one and only “reason for the season”! This heirloom-quality King Melchior of the Crèche d’Autun is indeed a treasure for many years and many Christmases to come!
