The Virgin Mary of the Nativity Grande Creche White Series cradles in her hands the central mystery of the Nativity. Fashioned with faith by cloistered nuns in their monastic workshop in Europe, this meditative Virgin Mary statuette is one of 18 pieces in a breath-taking nativity set (crèche). This Virgin Mary is one of the first pieces to acquire, perhaps along with the Infant Jesus and Saint Joseph (see below). With these three pieces in hand, you can then begin filling out your Grande Crèche year after year, whether it is a gift for your own or another family, or a donation to your church. Eventually your Grande Crèche will be complete and displayed in its entirety during the Christmas season in your home, or office, or workplace, or church!
The Grande Crèche (White) – A Virgin Mary depicted with Faith, Hope and Love
The Virgin Mary is 10.6 inches high and, along with the other seventeen pieces of the Grande Crèche (white), is made from a mixture of dolomite stone and resin which is then finished by hand in the monastery’s workshop. While in prayer, each sister performs a specific assigned task to help complete each and every piece. The Grande Crèche (white) is, then, profoundly “culturally authentic” and a real labor of love, faith, and hope!
The Grande Crèche (white) – An Heirloom Gift for the Ages
The Grande Crèche (white) on display every Christmas season radiates beauty, serenity, and depth in every place where families, friends, and persons of faith come together. In Europe during every Christmas season, small and large crèches are on display in many public places. May your own home, office, workplace, school and church receive a crèche of heirloom-quality such as this, a crèche that bespeaks theological and artistic integrity about the one, true “reason for the season”! This Virgin Mary and the rest of the Grande Crèche (white) is a gift of such enduring heirloom quality that it will be treasured and displayed prominently for a very long time to come!
