The Shepherdess of the Nativity Grande Creche White Series gazes with reverence upon Jesus, the baby lying in the manger, the King of the Jews, the absolute focus of this and every Nativity, the one true “reason for the season.” A community of nuns brought this piece into existence, along with seventeen others which now together constitute this nativity scene or crèche. Consider acquiring for your own crèche the Shepherdess along with the ewe, the sheep and lamb. By acquiring two or more pieces each year, you will quickly ascertain that your Grande Crèche is becoming increasingly complete. And one day in the not too distant future, your crèche will finally be complete and now displayed prominently during the Christmas season!
The Shepherdess – A Labor of Love, Faith and Hope
The Shepherdess stands 12.6 inches tall and is fashioned from local dolomite stone and resin. Each and every piece is hand-finished by the sisters in the atelier of their monastery located in Western Europe. Each sister prayerfully undertakes one specific task as her contribution to completing each piece. Because of how, where, and by whom each and every piece is made, the Grande Crèche (white) is truly ”culturally authentic” as well as a marvelous labor of love, faith and hope!
