Nazarene Nativity - Lepi
The Romantic era, which lasted from the late 18th well into the 19th century, strongly influenced the art scene of those day. Accordingly, the representation of the nativity scene as a symbol of the birth of Jesus was influenced.
The oriental style elements, such as the landscape motif with the palm trees and the big differences between wealth and poverty, can also be found in the Nazarene Nativity of Lepi.
The contrast between the rich, magnificent clothes of the Holy 3 Kings and that of the poor shepherds is clear. The birth of the Jesus Child represents the downfall of paganism, which is symbolized by the ruins of the temple. The glass dome symbolizes the firmament above the Holy Family, the holy 3 Wise Men and all shepherds celebrating the birth of Jesus.
The wood carved crib Nazarene by Lepi is available in sizes 10 - 13 and 20 cm (3,94 – 5,12 and 7,87 inch) and in the variations natural, stained, stained 3 times and colored wood. The Christmas nativity Nazarene is carved in maple wood and each nativity figure is hand-painted with oil paints.
