Beautiful With Excellent Craftsmanship
Having been blessed enough to visit Israel twice and fall in love with Israel and her people, when we saw this Nativity scene we wanted it to display. The olive wood is strikingly beautiful and the clear coating brings out the quality of the grain and enhances the appearance.
There are two minor things to expect when you order, some of the pieces like the wooden ladder and shelves are delicate. Since a tiny bit of glue is used to adhere them, it is possible you may have to reattach them. The other is the base. Tiny screws hold the hinges in place. I filled the screw holes with super glue and the screws hold just fine. These two things are not near enough to cause me to give the Nativity scene any less than perfect marks. We love it and hope you will also.
One last thing on price. Keep in mind olive wood is expensive no matter where you are.
