Product Description

Classic nativities are a beautiful way to celebrate the Christmas season. This set is no different. Intricately carved from wood it makes a perfect addition for any collector or as a house warming or wedding gift.

In the area south of Antananarivo, Madagascar, live the people of the Zafinamiry tribe. Legend has it that the Zafinamiry fled the forest to avoid being enslaved. They now number just 25,000. Their once healthy community has just over 100 villages left with few trees remaining due to years of extensive slash and burn. Their livelihood as woodcarvers is in dire jeopardy. These lovely nativities were hand crafted by two sisters and their husbands.  The men do the carving and the women do the sanding and finish work. 

  • Made by hand in Madagascar
  • Carved from fanazava wood
  • Tallest piece measures approximately 6-1/4" tall
  • Set includes Mary, Joseph, Jesus, angel, cow, camel, donkey, goat, sheep
