A Crèche Created OF Dolomite, but WITH Faith, Hope and Love
The Ox is 3.9 inches in length. Each of the 11 pieces of the dolomite Autun crèche are fashioned from a composite of dolomite stone and resin which is then individually completed by the sisters in their monastery’s workshop in Europe. Each sister is assigned one specific task which she prayerfully performs on each and every piece. The Autun crèche is surely the purest labor of love, faith and hope!
