These statues, inspired by Gothic art, are made of extraordinary craftmanship. The Virgin seems deeply recollected in an attitude full of grace. Saint Joseph, standing, expresses the humility of God's faithful servant contemplating the mystery of the Incarnation whose privileged witness he is. The Child-God, wrapped in swaddling clothes, is lying in a manger. His baby face radiates peaceful joy. He can also be placed in the hands of his Mother.
The statue of the Virgin can also be displayed by itself outside of Christmas season, in this attitude that expresses so well her receptivity to the Holy Spirit and availability to do the Will of God. A Bible can be placed in her hands.
The Crèche has been created by the Sisters of Bethlehem, according to the traditional Nativity scenes that Christians all over the world display during Christmas Season.
The figurines are made in dolomite, a mix of synthetic resin and stone powder. They are first molded, and then individually carved for details and hand painted to produce unique pieces. The crèche was made by the “Atelier Saint Joseph” in our monastery of Mougères, France.
All artwork is done in solitude and in prayer, and with love.
