The knock came at the door of the inn. It was late. We can imagine the innkeeper had been burning both ends of the candle. The census crowd had packed Bethlehem and he had finally locked the doors for the night, until the knock.
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
