Begin your LEPI Kastlunger Nativity scene collection with the Holy Family. This includes Baby Jesus in crib, Mary, and Joseph.
This 5.25 inch scale (13 cm) nativity set is handcarved in Italy from Alpine Maple, which is indigenous to the Groden Valley and is used for all LEPI woodcarvings. The wood is dried naturally for two years, then kiln dried for two weeks, reducing the wood to a moisture content of 8-12%. This enables the carvings to be in families for generations without any cracking or damage to the wood.
Purchases of any LEPI woodcarvings are viewed as family heirlooms and are passes from generation to generation. Each piece of this exquisite Nativity has been hand-carved and hand-painted in the LEPI workshops in Italy after the original models made by the master woodcarver Harald Kastlunger. This expressive Nativity is not only an heirloom, but a magnificent work of art!

The most beautiful thing I own. Bought this a couple years ago and leave it up all year long. An amazing creche and worth the cost.
