Nativity Tree of Life, Heirloom Christmas table decoration
Peace on Earth, goodwill to all!
The Tree of life is found across many cultures, and depicted across mythology, religion and philosophy. Generally symmetrical and always imbued with symbolism and meaning, they tell a story to be read, reimagined and retold.
This tree tells the Nativity story. Beneath the star of wonder and announcing angels, a baby sleeps, whilst his parents dance with joy. Wise folk bring potions and tinctures, whilst the shepherds tend to the animals. Song birds sing in celebration and some visiting guineafowl stop to see what all the fuss is about.
This beautiful and intricate nativity is a true Heirloom piece, and will be a firm favourite on your mantlepiece for many years to come.
Hand screen printed in 3 bold colours, night black, star white and royal gold.
Each of these nativities is a beautiful work of art, truly one of a kind. The screenprinting process means that no two prints will ever be quite the same. Please allow for slight colour and alignment differences from the image seen... this is the unique joy and beauty of screen printing!
Your Tree of Life measures approx 24cm x 24cm, with a 15cm cross stand and has been given a coat of beeswax for protection.
If looked after these decorations will last a lifetime! Store in a cool dry place away from moisture. This item is fragile and needs to be stored flat in the packing it's delivered in or similar.
