Mosaic of Wood
This nativity set is a mosaic of wood consisting of more than two hundred pieces. Termed Intarsia, the many elements of the crèche are fitted into a support, and suggest the long road to Bethlehem, meandering through a Mid-eastern landscape. Made mainly of cedar wood, the silhouettes of the nativity figures are like escapees from a world of too much wooden harmony. Together they form the beginning of a new world at the end of a long road.
