Handcrafted Olive Wood Carving Made in Bethlehem

These unique pieces are hand carved by Christian, family-owned workshops in Bethlehem. Olive trees are an important part of the landscape of central Israel, and are mentioned many times throughout the Bible. Some of the olive trees in Bethlehem are estimated to be as much as 2,000 years old, so the olive wood used in these crosses is a piece of Biblical history in of itself.

Olive wood carving actually began as a Christian handicraft in the Holy Land as early as the fourth century B.C. to create gifts for early pilgrims. Some of the descendants of early craftsmen here are still carving olive wood figures today. These carvings are not just a simple souvenir, but rather a piece of history that supports a long tradition of Christians living in Israel.
