The Shepherd's Grotto/Bella Santos Collection

3,400.00

New for 2016, the Bella Santos Collection is a unique presentation of the nativity.  Each piece is one of a kind, displayed in a museum quality glass case trimmed in wood.  The Shepherd's Grotto is reminiscent of the first nativity in the hills of Assisi in 1223.  The setting is created entirely in wood, with dramatic LED lighting that can be dimmed.  The backdrop is an original painting by Michael Stumpf.  The protective glass case, which makes storage and display easier, can be removed if you would like.  Details like the lighted grotto, the illuminated angel and the glowing shepherd's fire create an ambiance unlike any other nativity.  This piece includes 18 figures and animals, all carved in linden wood and hand painted by the artisans at Ulrich Perathoner.  The visitors to the Grotto are all shepherds or shepherdesses and children.  The Joseph figure is approximately 4" tall.  The case is approximately 14" square, with the controls for the lighting under the base. Hand made copper wire trees and silk palm tree add exquisite detail to the diorama of the birth of Christ.
