Many churches build magnificent Fontanini Nativities over the years by starting a Nativity Fund. Parishioners contribute to the fund and the church purchases Fontanini figures from Mosack's as money resources become available. Some parishioners also purchase individual Fontanini Nativity figures as gifts or memorials.
The House of Fontanini has been creating old world sculptures in the village of Bagni di Lucca, Italy, for more than 100 years. The life-like, heirloom-quality Fontanini Nativities figurines have been produced in many sizes, including the 50” Fontanini Masterpiece Nativity Collection Asher Shepherd figure #52368.
"Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock. The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck with great fear. The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger." And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom His favor rests."
When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us." So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child. All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds. And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them." Luke 2:8-20
