Nativity set

The size specification for crib sets always refers to the size of the crib figures.
Example: If you buy a nativity set in size 12 cm, the nativity figures have a size of 12 cm.

Some crib sets also have in parenthesis the size of the crib stall: e.g. 12 cm (36x18x36)
This means that the crib figures have a size of 12 cm and the nursery is 36x18x36 cm.

Tradition and Variety of Nativity Figure Sets

Setting up nativity figure sets is a tradition deeply rooted in Christian culture. Every year during the Christmas season, people around the world delight in the detailed and artistically crafted nativity figures that bring the story of the Nativity to life. Children, in particular, love the beautifully carved figures, learning the story of Jesus' birth in a playful way.

The History of the Nativity Scene

The tradition of the nativity scene dates back to the accounts of the evangelists Luke and Matthew. Originally, only the Baby Jesus, the ox, and the donkey were depicted. Over time, Mary, Joseph, and other figures such as the Wise Men were added. This variety reflects the development and enrichment of the nativity tradition.

Our nativity figure sets are made from premium woods such as mountain maple, Swiss pine, and ash. Wood, as a natural raw material, has always held a special fascination for people. The hand-carved figures radiate a unique warmth and are true works of art, crafted with great attention to detail.
