This is one of the best nativities from the Erzgebirge region of the former East Germany. The work is carefully made with the use of lathes. The sweet little animals are “ring animals”, cut from a ring of wood carefully created with a desired profile, then carved and painted. There are plenty of delightful details in this distinctive set with a contemporary design. Even the palm trees are nice, with slightly bent trunks and palm fronds of thin curled wood. There are 15 pieces in this set. The tallest figure is two inches (5 cm.). The tallest palm tree is five inches (12 cm.).
