The Tranquility Creche

This completely organic nativity scene is created with all natural materials. The sublimely carved sculptural figures from the Leonardo Collection are crafted from alpine maple created by the Rowi Studios in Val Gardena in the soaring Italian Alps. These figures are available in a natural finish or in an elegant stained version and in several different sizes.  Figures in this setting are approximately 7” tall.  They are nestled in a setting of Buckingham river rocks, with a windswept natural manzanita branch, dried broom, preserved deer moss, and other natural materials.  The glowing circular backdrop is 2” thick and derived from a live edge slab of Ambrosia Maple which has been treated with six coatings of antique oil to bring out the rich details.   The entire piece is lit with two adjustable warm white LED lights.

The overall size of this nativity is approximately 16”h x 20”w x 14”d

This nativity is designed to be a ‘family nativity’ where each family member can add ‘found’ natural elements from nature like rocks, shells, pine cones, driftwood, etc.  While the central natural elements are permanently affixed, the other natural pieces can be rearranged to allow for individual artistic expression, making it a truly unique family nativity.  Additional figures can be added each year as space permits.  It’s the perfect nativity for a mantle, dining room sideboard or shelf and can be created in many different sizes by Navidad using these figures from Rowi or any of our other distinctive nativity figures from Europe.  Naturally, the back pieces will vary based on the availability of the wood we select for any design.
