The Fir Cone Crib is not only a beautiful nativity scene, but it also smells very good. The nativity figures of the Fir Cone Crib are in fact carved in cembra pine wood
. Cembra pine is a very soft wood, which allows a perfect manual work. Another feature of the cembra pine wood is given by its grains, which are perfectly visible. For all these reasons, the Fir Cone Crib is often bought in natural wood, although it is also available as stained and colored.
The nativity figurines of the Fir Cone Crib stand on a pedestal. The Holy Family
, consisting of St. Joseph, Mary kneeling and the Infant Jesus in cradle, can be purchased in a set. The shepherds usually wear rustic style hats.
The wood carved figures are available in sizes 12 – 15 – 18 -- 24 – 36 and 50 cm (4,72 – 5,91 – 7,09 – 9,45 – 14,17 – 19,69 inch).
