This Nativity was sculpted by request of the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. It replicates a stone carving of the Holy Family found high in the Washington cathedral ceiling. George Carruth (the nativity sculptor) was the first stone carver to exhibit his art in the Cathedral in DC.
Created by American sculptor George Carruth, this nativity is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. It is hand-cast in stone and the hanging wire is securely embedded in the back. Made in the USA.
A year-round art piece nativity that can lay flat, stand upright, or hang on a wall. Crafted with a natural stone tone and measures 6.25"H x 6.5"W x 2.25"D.
A potion of the proceeds of the sale of this nativity benefit the ministries and programs of the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC. A national House of Prayer for all people.
I have been looking at this nativity for several years, and finally purchased it. Love the intimate portrayal of the Holy Family, and their connection. It is heavier than I anticipated.
