We offer you a Statue of Jesus the Good Shepherd, carved from log made by hand in Bethlehem from the natural olive wood. The texture of the wood makes each statuette unique, and the craftsman's talent and sincere faith give the beloved Christian image an indescribable warmth.
In addition, the olive tree is very symbolic in Christianity, a dove with an olive sprig let Noah know that the flood water began to subside and the tree became a symbol of the establishment of peace between God and man. On the icons, the olive branch means joy in scenes of the Annunciation, and in the hands of the Virgin Mary it is a symbol of virgin purity. Early Christians sometimes used olive wreaths as symbols of the martyrdom of Christ praying in the olive groves of the Garden of Gethsemane. This item will make a bold and unique gift, perfect for your family and friends.
The natural texture of the olive wood is unique in every piece. Every thing are made only from the pruning's of ancient olive trees growing in Bethlehem, so they are environmentally friendly.
