This is a stunning antique sculpture. It is a highly detailed scene of the Nativity. The focal point is, of course, Our Lord in the manger. The Blessed Virgin Mary is kneeling over Him in prayer while they are surrounded by a host of people, angles and animals. Cherubs are rollicking in the clouds above and the shepherds are in the distant background. The scene is vibrant with excitement and the detail is amazing.
This piece was made in France and is signed “Favier”. We believe it is bronze and dates to the 1800’s. It is housed in a beautiful wood frame and is quite heavy.
Please Note: The bronze has no backing and is loose from the frame. This can be easily repaired.

This piece has a matt finish with green patina highlighting the details. The reverse is painted gold and there are two holes to allow mounting.
