Ornament of the Week----Bethlehem-Israel

Olive trees have symbolized peace since the times of the ancient Greeks and Romans. In Jerusalem today, trees aged almost 900 years stand. Earthwood ornaments are made from the pruned wood of the trees.
The  olive trees are pruned every two years to promote fruiting. Once pruned, the wood is dried for at least one year after which amazing artists are able to carve and polish the designs for these one of a kind ornaments from Bethlehem
Our International Christmas Shops has a beautiful selection of ornaments, figures and nativities crafted from olive wood from the Holy Land.
