The Virgin Mary of the Nativity Creche d’Autun Series points to the central mystery of the Nativity – the “reason for the season.” This piece – designed and fashioned with faith by cloistered sisters in a European monastery – is part of a lovely 11-piece nativity scene or crèche. The Virgin Mary, along with the Infant Jesus and St. Joseph will make a great beginning to the crèche which you intend either for your own family, or for a loved one, another family or your church as a Christmas gift. When you acquire two or three pieces each year, your crèche soon will be complete and on display in your home, workplace, office, school or church!
From Western Europe with Love (and Hope and Faith) – The Dolomite Autun Crèche
The Virgin Mary is 3.5 inches long. All 11 pieces are fashioned from dolomite stone and hand-finished by religious sisters in the workshop or their monastery in Western Europe. Each sister is given a specific task which she prayerfully performs as her contribution to each completed crèche piece. Each and every piece of every crèche is indeed a labor of faith, hope, and love!
A Crèche of Heirloom Quality for Christmas
The complete Crèche d’Autun imparts beauty and serenity wherever families, friends, and persons of faith gather in the Christmas season. In Europe public displays of a large or small crèche are commonplace in offices, banks, restaurants, hospitals, and care facilities. May your own home, workplace, office, school, and church be blessed by the presence of a nativity scene that bespeaks with theological and aesthetic integrity the real “reason for the season”! This heirloom-quality Crèche d’Autun is a treasure for the ages and for Christmas to come!
