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 Orion: Being a blacksmith in Bethlehem was a demanding job - villagers needed many tools and household goods, and repairs to be made. Orion knew his job well, and was pleased to be of service. He also was a kind man, willing to share this knowledge with the village children who visited his shop. Young Herschel stopped by one day to show off the new cradle he had made, with the metal tools Orion had crafted for him. Herschel had heard that a small child had been born, and was laid in a manger in a stable - he didn't want other babies not to have a fitting place to sleep. The cradle was a fine piece of work, and Orion was pleased - not only of the craftsmanship Herschel had shown, but of the kindness of the boy's heart as well..

    Great detail. This is an addition to my grandson's nativity set. Last Christmas he received the blacksmith shop, which he loved, especially the light up feature. Yonder Star is awonderful place to purchase Fontanini. Great selection, prices and quick delivery
