The Shepherd of the Nativity Creche d’Autun Series joins us at the central mystery of the Nativity, the newborn baby Jesus, the Messiah. This charming piece – fashioned with faith by religious sisters in their cloistered monastic workshop in Europe – is part of an 11-piece nativity set (or crèche). This Shepherd is an integral piece to add, either to your still-incomplete Autun crèche for your own family, or to the Autun crèche you are giving as a Christmas gift to another family or to your church. If you accumulate two or three pieces year by by year, soon you will be able to enjoy your complete Autun crèche and to display in full during Christmas time in your home, in your office, in your workplace, or in your church!
The Autun Crèche – Dolomite Stone Fashioned with Faith, Hope and Love
The Shepherd stands 4.5 inches high. All eleven pieces of the Crèche d’Autun are made from dolomite stone mixed with resin and finished by hand by the nuns in the workshop of their monastery. Each sister prayerfully takes on one specific assigned task to advance the completion of each and every piece. The Autun crèche is indeed most culturally authentic and a genuine labor of love (and faith and hope)!
