From the Hestia Companions Nativity story card: In every group of shepherds, there is a young boy learning to be a shepherd. He has to learn to feed and care for the sheep. Josiah is one of these boys. The older shepherds give him simple jobs, but it is now time for the jobs to get more difficult. The shepherds had heard about that was happening in Bethlehem, so they sent Josiah to town with two sheep. He was to bring one to the family as a gift, and the other was to keep him company on the journey back home. After a very long walk, Josiah arrived at the town and presented the shepherds' gift to the family. Then, very tired from his journey, but happy to have fulfilled his mission, he fell asleep with his sheep by his side. The Christmas season is beautifully portrayed in this heirloom quality nativity set. Carefully chosen fabrics are applied to the bonded marble sculptures to add texture and an authentic first century appearance. Each year artist Linda MacDonald adds a new piece and retires an old one, and collectors are building value as they enjoy the beauty of this Christmas Nativity scene.
