The Rives Nativity is a crib based on the Tyrolean style. Tyrolean hats, aprons and long beards characterize the crib figures of the Rives Nativity. The special feature of the nativity is the wood from which it is carved. The Rives nativity figures are carved from swiss stone pine wood. If the crib figures are bought in natural wood, you immediately notice the unique scent of the Swiss stone pine. The swiss stone pine is also a very special wood, because it is very soft and therefore it`s very good for carving.
The Rives nativity is available in 15 cm natural, or painted with oil paint.
The same nativity in several sizes is the Tyrolese nativity. This nativity is not carved from swiss stone pine but from maple wood.
