Tent maker Aquila for your 3.5" scale Fontanini Nativity scene. $15.00 55045

Fontanini Nativity figures are made in Italy and are richly detailed and hand-painted in an old-world palette for authenticity and enduring beauty. The figures are handcrafted from a specially formatted polymer that is resistant to chipping and breaking.

The Fontanini Nativity story of Aquila: It was a very busy time for Aquila, Bethlehem's tentmaker. Not only was he making shelters for the villagers, but now too for the many travelers coming to the city for the Roman Census. He toiled day and night, always focused on his work, while Priscilla, his pregnant wife, tended their home. As he worked, he heard rumors of a strange and wonderful event that had occurred at the city's stable - having not witnessed this event himself, he dismissed it. But later, a servant came to Aquila bearing a tent panel that needed repair. From the exquisite quality of the material, Aquila knew that it must belong to a King, and why would any King come to his tiny village? Perhaps the event - the birth of the Savior - was true! He was dismayed that his zeal for his work had overshadowed his faith. He prepared a humble tent for the new born Child, and with his wife, paid homage. Seeing the Baby, he was filled with great contentment, and vowed never to let his work come before more truly important things.
