Add to the realism of your olive wood Nativity sets by adding nativity animals such as camels or the donkey that Mary rode into Bethlehem when she was “great with child.” What a privileged role that donkey played in the Nativity story. Yet often, Nativity sets neglect to include this humble animal. Now you can add the donkey to your own set to remind you of the long journey of Mary and Joseph as they traveled to the place where the Christ child was to be born.
Let’s not forget the significance of the camels in the story, either. The camels carried the magi a great distance so they could bring gifts to the newborn king. Including olive wood camels in your Nativity scene adds authenticity and a reminder of the majesty of this moment in history.
Our hand-carved camels vary in height to accompany different-sized Nativity sets. They are crafted from the wood of the olive tree. The appearance of each camel is unique due to the beautiful grain of the olive wood from the Holy Land. Each is accompanied by our Tag of Authenticity.
