The Star of the Nativity Grande Creche Color Series guides us to the newborn baby Jesus, the Messiah, the central mystery of the Nativity. This simple gilded 8-pointed star – fashioned with faith by cloistered sisters in a monastic workshop in Western Europe – is one of 18 pieces in a most impressive nativity set (or crèche). This Star is an important piece to add, either to your still-partial Grande Crèche for your own family, or to the Grande Crèche which is your Christmas gift to another family or to your church. If you purchase one or two pieces each year, you will eventually be able to savor your Grande Crèche in its entirety, on display during the Christmas season in your home, office, workplace, or church!
The Grande Crèche (color) – Dolomite Fashioned with Faith, Hope and Love
The Star measures 4.3 inches in diameter. All eighteen pieces of the Grande Crèche (color) are composed of dolomite stone mixed with resin and hand-finished by the sisters in their monastery workshop. Each sister prayerfully completes a specific assigned task to further the final rendering of each and every piece. Indeed, the Grande Crèche (color) is culturally authentic – a generous labor of love (and faith and hope)!
The Grande Crèche (color) – An Heirloom for Many a Christmas to Come
Every Christmas season the Grande Crèche (color) will instill with beauty, serenity, and meaning the places where families, friends, and persons of faith gather. In Europe during every Christmas season, small and large crèches will be visible in many public places. May your home, office, workplace, school and church be graced with an heirloom-quality crèche of this caliber, a crèche which bespeaks with theological and artistic authority the only “reason for the season”! This Star, along with the entire Grande Crèche (color) is a gift of such obvious heirloom quality that you will cherish and display it prominently for many a Christmas to come!
