Product Details

Hand-carved by African artisans, this Nativity set includes Mary, Joseph, the Baby Jesus, Wisemen, Shephards, animals and an oval display board to beautifully set up the figurines. Due to the handmade nature, actual size of each piece will vary slightly. Images shown are representative of the pieces included in each nativity set. Because these are hand-carved, one-of-a-kind sets made by different artisans in the community, actual pieces may have minor design nuances, but will be representative of images displayed.

Soapstone is a soft stone, making it easy to carve into many forms. Handle with care to avoid breakage. Each piece has gone through multiple stages of sanding and waxing, giving the soapstone a satiny finish.

Story behind the art: Each sculpture is artfully hand-carved from a single piece of Kisii soapstone, found only in the hills of southwestern Kenya. Mining the soapstone from surface hills is a labor-intensive process, using little to no machinery. Laborers work with shovels, picks, axes and machetes to carve out large soapstone chucks, which are then carved into beautiful art.
