The Val Gardena Cloche NativitySKU: SQ4673704
CURRENTLY ON EXHIBIT AT ZIKOS JEWELERS, NEW HOPE PA. The Val Gardena Cloche Nativity is a distinctive presentation of the nativity in a sparkling glass dome. The focus is on the Holy Family, with two lambs and one sheep in adoration and a nativity angel floating above. This piece is crafted almost entirely of wood, and can be viewed from all sides. The Original Heide figures are from their Val Gardena sculpture studio in the Italian Alp. Figures have hand painted, carved wood heads, hands and feet and are draped with layers of starched fabric that is hand painted in exquisite detail. The Joseph figure is approximately 7” high. The overall cloche is nestled on a 9” round wood base, and is about 17.5” high
The setting includes a hand made poplar tree and gnarly copper wire tree. The glass dome, which is removable, makes displaying and storing very easy.
As with all Navidad nativities, a piece of rock from the hills of Umbria outside of Assisi is included in the setting as a tribute to St. Francis who created the first nativity in 1223.
