As one of the Three Wise Men, King Balthazar is a key component of any nativity. As a part of our Dolomite White Series Nativity, this Balthazar is a beautiful reminder of the saying, “In Christ there is no East or West.” Built in a French monastic community and made from local stone, this poignant figure is a striking example of craftsmanship that will bring the joy of Christ’s universal love to your family for generations of Christmases to come.
In Christ There is no East or West
This Balthazar stands about six inches in height, and features a stunningly textured robe. Balthazar’s skin is a deep black, reflecting the fact that the Three Wise Men came from all over the world, knowing through God that the unifying force of Christ would soon be present. His face is serene and knowing, touched already by the peace of the Good News.
A New Christmas Tradition and Heirloom for the Family
This Balthazar (and the entire Dolomite White Series) is radiant with the deep spirituality of the monastic community that artfully brought him into being. This year, enrich the spirituality of your family’s Christmas with a handcrafted nativity that shines with serene beauty. This statue is harvested from the earth, made from local dolomite stone, at a convent in France. Each sister takes the piece into her individual hermitage, where she performs one part of the task of making these stunning pieces. It is this loving care that makes each piece a unique prayer in and of itself. These pieces are made from the earth, and are a beautiful song of praise. They are made to last and can be passed on through the generations of your family.
