A title of Jesus, based on a passage in the Gospel of John, where he says, “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep,” and “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.” The metaphor of God as a shepherd is also found in the Old Testament. Exquisitely made using a single piece of the finest olive wood, the wood is deeply stained to give a warm soft glow and has a smooth, elegant finish.
Olive Wood products are crafted in Bethlehem by several small local families who have mastered the craft over time and generations. The Olive Tree is a blessed tree in the Holy Book and Holy Land. After the olive wood being dried, artists build their masterpieces. These items make perfect gifts. Olive Wood souvenirs do not require much care. Olive oil is naturally protecting them from corrosion and changes of color.
Please note that all olive wood items are unique with various grains, therefor you will never receive two identical pieces
