This retired Fontanini King Balthazar on Camel #56816 from Roman Inc. is made from virtually unbreakable polymer and depicts the King bringing his gift of myrrh to the Baby Jesus.
A Nubian Prince, King Balthazar journeyed from Africa to pray before the Child and carried the most valuable treasure he could gather. Dressed in desert robes and a cloth beneath his crown to protect him from the heat, Balthazar wore soft slippers so that he might not disturb the Child when he found Him.
King Balthazar on his elephant is hand-painted using non-toxic paints. The House of Fontanini has been creating old world sculptures in the village of Bagni di Lucca, Italy, for more than 100 years.
