The Manger of the Nativity Grande Creche Color Series, humble in appearance and purpose, is now exalted as the ark of the New Covenant which is the Infant Jesus, the central mystery of the Nativity. In their monastic atelier, European cloistered nuns have created this piece, one of 18 pieces in this lovely nativity scene (crèche). This Manger probably will be among your first acquisitions for your nativity set, along with the Virgin Mary, the Infant Jesus, and Saint Joseph. Your Grande Crèche will eventually be complete and on prominent display during the Christmas season in your church, school, home, office, or workplace!
The Simple Manger – Fashioned with Faith, Hope and Love
The Manger is 7.5 inches long and composed exclusively of wood. Each piece must be individually finished by hand in the cloistered sisters’ atelier of their monastery in Western Europe. Every nun prayerfully carries out her assigned task to help bring each piece to fruition. The Grande Crèche (color) can only be described as “culturally authentic” – an astounding labor of love, hope, and faith!
