The Crèche is designed to display the classic Nativity collection. 17”h x 20”w x 11.5”d. Constructed of wood and painted by hand. Three-piece assembly; folds flat for storage. While simple in architectural detail, the Crèche has meaning built into its very design. The piece has a regal, stately appearance, yet is constructed from humble materials of barn wood and nails. The structure’s proportions also suggest the size and shape of the cross, while its rusty nails foretell the crucifixion. The Crèche intimately shelters the Holy Family, then opens wide to welcome shepherds and travelers from afar. As a Christmas gift, wedding gift or self-purchase, the Willow Tree Nativity collection continues on as a family tradition.
