The Dolfi Nativity wood carving collection are the most exclusive wood carved figures made in Italy. The hand carving and hand painting of this carvings is made in the new headquarters of the Dolfi Land Studios in Ortisei, Gardena Valley, Dolomites, South Tirol , Italy. The birth of Jesus was narratives of Matthew and Luke and have some elements in common; both relate that Jesus of Nazareth was the child of Mary, who at the time of his conception was betrothed as the wife of Joseph, said to be a descendent of the Biblical King David. His conception, preceded by an angelic annunciation, is presented as miraculous, in that he is conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, rather than by Joseph. The Gospel of Matthew presents the birth as the fulfilment of prophecies made by the Prophets of Israel. Visit the wood carving world of Dolfi now online!!!
