Bethlehem Christian Olive Wood Statues and Figures
From the prunings of ancient olive trees in Bethlehem & Jerusalem. Artisans in Bethlehem use hand-carving techniques which they carried on from the fathers and grandfathers, and then teach it to their kids so the tradition goes on.
In and around Bethlehem there are tens of small workshops, each specializing in making a few kinds of Christian statues and figures.
We buy these figures and more from our partner artisans there and make sure they are paid fair wages for the work. We greatly appreciate that there are still makers doing this job, and not machines.
When you shop here, you are saving yourself the hassle of looking for the best gifts from Palestine. Here we have the gifts you need, all in one place.
