Nativity Scenes

ANRI of Italy

This is a rather special Nativity set by ANRI of Italy. All of the figures are hand carved wood. They are then hand painted and gilded. All of this beautiful work was done by Mr. Ulrich Bernardi of Val Gardena.

ANRI of Italy

This crèche scene is also made by ANRI of Italy. The stone structure looks more like Italy than the outskirts of Bethlehem.


This Nativity set is ceramic and beautifully hand painted.
