An authentic hand made Nativity scene crafted from rosewood by master artisan Francis Agbete of Ghana. This 14 piece nativity scene weighs 2.1 lbs total. The hut measures 7.25" (Height) x 3.7" (Width) x 3.7" (Diameter). The figurines range from 1 inch to 6.5 inches in height.

Mary and Joseph kneeling next to an angel, followed by a camel and a shepherd standing up. A donkey lies down in front of the hut, and on the other side are the three Wise Kings with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Three sheep guard the manger where the Baby Jesus peacefully sleeps.

Each set is crafted by hand so there may be slight and subtle variations in color, size and pattern.

Francis Agbete

My name is Francis Agbete and I come from a family of traditional wood carvers. I was born December 28, 1976 in a suburb of Accra. I attended the Vakpo Secondary Technical Institute from 1994 to 1996, and upon graduation I enrolled at the Accra Poly-Technical Institute to read Mechanical Technician course grade two. While at school, funding was becoming a difficulty. So during weekends and vacations, I would visit my father's wood carving workshop and assist him by carving some products for sale. I have always helped my father when he's needed me, so coming to assist my father at the workshop at this time of my educational career was not a new job for me.

The realization eventually dawned on me to stay on, work on my own designs, and display my own woodcarvings so that I could earn enough to support my education. I ventured and opened a workshop at the Craft Village near the Tetteh Quarshie Circle. Managing and controlling the operations of the shop was becoming a problem since, as a student, I needed more time for my studies than for my carving jobs. To solve this problem, I explained this idea both to my sister, Mary Agbete and my cousin, Stephen Agbete and asked them about the possibility of looking after the workshop and selling the items I carved while I was at school.

Gift of The Magi ll

I was fortunate to be able to purchase one of your Nativity sets when i visited Ghana 2 years ago. I loved it as soon as I saw it and I am so happy to learn about you. You are very talented. I am excited to have this displayed in my home every Christmas and it brings back the fond memories I have of Ghana whenever i look at it.
