Nativity scene starter set includes the Holy Family, Angel painted with 24 kt gold and silver, and the Stable. The stable measures 17.5" H x 16.5" W x 8.75" D.
The stable for this LEPI Kastlunger Nativity Scene starter set has been re-designed. A chimney was added and the shape of the window was changed. See photo of stable by itself for accurate depiction.
This 5.25 inch scale (13 cm) Nativity crèche set is handcarved 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.
