The Donkey of the Nativity Grande Creche White Series gazes placidly on the infant Jesus in the manger, the King of the Jews, and the central focus of the Nativity. In their European monastic, cloistered nuns have made this piece with seventeen others which together now compose this nativity set (or crèche). Consider acquiring the Donkey along with the ox for your own crèche. When you get a few pieces each year, over time you will fill out your Grande Crèche which now can be displayed prominently every Christmas!
The Donkey – A Labor of Love, Faith and Hope
The Donkey, 11 inches long, is made from local dolomite stone and resin. The cloistered nuns fashion each piece by hand in the workshop of their monastery in Western Europe. Each nun prayerfully goes about accomplishing one specific task designed to bring each piece to completion. The Grande Crèche (white) can be considered then “culturally authentic” as well as an incredible labor of love, faith, and hope!
