Original Nativity Wood Carving by Polish Artist Antoni Kaminski

I love our nativities from Poland.  The Polish artists prefer bright colors and clear detail in the faces and figures.

Nativity 221 - Poland - Carved Wood

An amazing work of folk art carved primarily out of 1 piece of wood (the star and the donkey ears are detachable.) So many characters: 3 angels, 7 chickens, 3 wise men, 2 Sheppard’s, 2 sheep, donkey, horse, and the blessed family all gather in a piece that is 27 in. tall (star included), 10 3/4 in. wide, and 3 3/4 in. deep. Folk Artist, Antoni Kaminski’s work has been shown in numerous galleries, primarily in Poland, but also in other European countries, Canada and the United States.
