Hand-Carved Fanazava Wood Nativity (9 Figures)

Regular price $168.00 USD
Regular price Sale price $168.00 USD

This hand-carved nativity set from the island of Madagascar is carved from a precious white wood called Fanazava.  

This gorgeous nativity contains eight figures: Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, an angel, a shepherd, three wise men, and a donkey. The angel's wings are removable, as well as Joseph's staff for easy storage.

The Malagasy people generally carve in a detailed European style (rather than traditional African styles) because the craftsman learned their carving style from French Jesuit priests. The purchase of this nativity helps the artisan earn a living wage.
