Exclusively designed for Yonder Star!
We are thrilled to offer this amazing hand-made in Maine, USA Nativity scene. This item is neatly dovetailed together and features 5 sides of display.
We wanted to have a Nativity scene from Maine that not only expressed the joy of the season, but also featured some of the things that are unique to Maine. If you look closely, you will see these distinctive features:
- 360 degree visibility in 3 dimension.
- Pine trees in place of palm trees.
- A starry night with moon on top!
- A Wiseman riding to the manger on a moose.
- A black bear and a lighthouse.
- A reindeer (also known as a caribou whose former range once included Maine).
- A puffin, which is an endangered species of bird with a bright orange beak that is also a nativity species to Maine.
- A Great Auk - the Great Auk was a large, flightless bird that once existed and numbered in the hundreds of millions and nested on rock islands of the Atlantic ocean, as far south as Maine. It was hunted to extinction by European whalers and settlers. It is interesting to note the first name given to this bird was "pen gwyn" by dutch sailors which translates into "white head". This name was the origin of the term penguin, thus, the "first" penguins actually existed in North America.
- At close distances, this lighted luminary Nativity box will project a light image of the participants of the Nativity.
This light box includes a small battery operated light (unscrew the light to remove the plastic protection and re-screw the light to illuminate). Luminary measures 4-3/4" W x 4-3/4" H x 4-3/4" D.
