Description

This peaceful ox is said to have kept the baby Jesus warm in the manger with his breath. An essential addition to your LEPI Kastlunger Nativity scene. 

This 5.25 inch scale (13 cm) Nativity creche set is hand carved 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!

    Kastlunger Wooden Nativity

    Posted by Betsy Westerhoff on Dec 21st 2017

    I started my collection of Kastlunger Nativity about 6 years ago. At first I ordered them from Europe, but then I found two North American sites that sell them. Yonder Star has occasionally offered discounts on their sets, and I've take advantage of them to add to my collection. This set has a "folk art" appeal and I LOVE the facial expressions on all of the pieces. This is an heirloom work of art, and as such it carries a hefty price tag. However, I have never been disappointed with the craftsmanship that goes into each piece.
