This incredible nativity set is hand carved in Rwanda using wild olive wood.
The three wise men, Mary, Joseph and two shepherds are approximately 4 3/4" tall. The set also includes baby Jesus, a lamb, a donkey and an ox.
The young artisans who carve these have had to drop out of school because they cannot afford the fees. Men in their communities teach them how to carve the nativities. The income they earn from their sales allows them to go back to school.
