Featuring 5 inch scale Figures
St. Francis of Assisi created the first nativity scene in 1223 at Greccio, Italy, in an attempt to place the emphasis of Christmas upon the worship of Christ rather than upon secular materialism and gift giving. That same focus on Christ in our lives is why we think a "Christ-Mass" Creche should be in every home and children should especially be encouraged to embrace this Christ-centered holiday tradition.
This nativity set was created for just that reason!
This small starter Nativity set will be cherished for generations! It includes Fontanini's most popular size figures and a solid (MDF) wood stable.
The Italian made stable measures 9.65 inches tall, 12.65 inches wide and 5 inches deep.
The set also includes 6 of the hand-painted, durable polymer figures that have made these collectables a favorite choice for parents generation after generation. Figures include:
Heirloom Holy Family
and a special kneeling angel figure (not sold in any other set or seperately).
