King Melchior is one of the Three “Wise Men” (also called Kings, Magi, and Astrologers) who traveled from afar to worship the child of the Star and to offer their gifts in homage to this newborn King of the Jews. They sense the holy mystery of God touching creation through a child. You might consider acquiring King Melchior (or another piece of this Nativity) each year until, one day, your exquisitely beautiful Nativity is complete in your home, office, or church!
King Melchior from a Dolomite Stone Crèche Made in France
King Melchior stands 6.3 inches high. This nativity comes to us from a contemplative monastic community of sisters in Europe. Each piece is handcrafted out of local dolomite stone, “harvested” from the earth. This nativity will be a wonderful gift to your own family, or to another family close to your heart, or to your church.
An Heirloom-Quality Crèche (Nativity) for Home, School, Office, and Church
The entire crèche will wonderfully enhance home, school, office, and any place where friends and family gather together to celebrate the sacred season of Christmas. The presence of a crèche lends a unique and purposeful depth to such places of gathering. In many European countries you will find a crèche and/or a Menorah, small or large, in public places, banks, businesses of all kinds, restaurants, hospitals and care facilities.
May every Christian home and many public places be graced and blessed by a crèche that bespeaks with theological and artistic honesty the Christian faith and its traditions. It is our heritage, it is our culture to integrate our religious beliefs into our daily living. This crèche – of such valued tangible heirloom quality – will be treasured and preserved for many generations to come!
