A Nativity Reflecting Wonder and Awe
The Kastlunger Nativity figures from Italy capture the excitement, anticipation and joy of Jesus’ birth. These figures celebrate the wonder of Christ’s birth, delighting all who see them. This is an heirloom Nativity that is handed down for generations. New and endearing pieces are added each year. Collect them all or collect a few. Many families begin with purchasing the Holy Family, adding other select nativity pieces like an angel, animal or the three kings over time.
Such a Nativity is a profound wedding gift and individual pieces can be given as anniversary gifts and Christmas gifts throughout the years.
Artist Harald Kastlunger Shares His Thoughts
My crib: I firmly believe that Christmas, feast of the peace, is more than just a moment of magical atmosphere and that is why I make every effort to give my figures a dashing appearance. The spiritual content of my sculpted works is conveyed by the distinctive traits of spontaneity of my characters, by their positive attitude towards earthly life. The exalted state of feeling inspired by the Nativity is suggested by the expressive motions of their hands and by their gestures. Their astonishment and ecstatic frame of mind is meant to come over fresh and vivid, an aim I feel unable to accomplish by traditional means.
