Description

The Holy Family, hand-carved in luminous alabaster. Created from a form of alabaster found in the Ayacucho region in the Peruvian highlands, this unique Nativity contains both the pink and white versions of this stone. Alabaster is an ornamental white stone frequently used for carving statuary or architectural decoration. With its translucent luster, alabaster was highly esteemed in ancient Egypt for making small perfume bottles.

    So pleased with this sweet piece. The detail is amazing for such a small piece. We wrapped it with silver jewelry wire and hung it on the tree. Beautiful!...

    I wish I had paid attention to description regarding size - it is very small. Having said that, though, it is beautiful and I'm very happy with it. Great things do come in small, well made packages! I had never seen alabaster before - it is prettier in person than the photo....
