Miniature nativity scene artisan handmade Christmas gift


Handmade nativity in natural olive wood to enjoy at Christmas time. The set includes Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, cow, donkey and Three wise men, purchase in a local religious shop. They are in resin. This Nativity scene decoration is a treasure for you and your family. It is not a toy or children’s product. 

Salvatore picks during sunny afternoons branches cut for pruning and selects which are the best for his project. That is why every listed item is unique. The sliced wood depends on the branch’s shape.

I ship it safely and nicely using a gift wrap made by myself with upcycled cardboard and gift paper. Please let me know if you prefer one of three colours shown in the last picture. Give it not for Christmas only, is a unique gift for an extra-special family or person. When an item is handmade, it has meaning and value. Gift it saying you know the name of the craftsman who made it.

At Mediterranean Art we made a few nativity sets of sliced olive wood picked locally (Messina) from our and friends fields available for shipping.

Salvatore works with passion and makes unique crafts with organic and recycled material, putting all his experience on these projects. Visiting Sicily and Malta, everyone may notice in each house a nativity scene, bigger or smaller. It is our tradition.

Italy is worldwide known for Christianism. Nativity art has been crafted in Naples and later in Palermo. The first crib had been carved by Andrea Mancino back in 1494 in a town called Termini Imerese, inside the church Maria Santissima dell’ Annunziata.

In this shop, you find one-offs items that may have imperfections. Please consider the whole handmade process to make them from home.

 I nicely pack it in a handmade wrap decorated with a raffia paper ribbon.

Support our small business by making a meaningful and valuable gift for your dear or a treat for yourself.
