Fontanini Seated Donkey Nativity Figure By Roman Inc. Item #: 52333 For the Fontanini 50" Masterpiece Collection The Italian artisans at Fontanini have paid tribute to the donkey and the important place they occupied during ancient times. These sturdy animals transported people and goods long distances. They also helped farmers with many of their daily chores. But surely Fontanini chose to pay homage to the donkey for the most important reason of all. It was a donkey that brought Mary and Joseph from Egypt to Bethlehem. Also it has long been believed donkeys were in the stable when Jesus was born. Skillfully hand-painted in a rich old-world style palette by Italian artisans. Materials: Marble-Based Resin Please Note: Figure can be used outdoors but not in extreme weather and should be placed in a sheltered area.
