White Woodland Masterpiece Nativity

I create at least one new Nativity design each year. It’s a subject I love for my art, a theme I never get tired of, telling the story at the heart of Christmas. They’re all special to me, I seem to put a little extra into all my Nativities. It’s a subject I believe draws out the best in me, both as an artist and a Christian. That said I think this year’s Nativity is some of my best work yet. The shapes and the scale are striking and to my mind dramatic. And I find the subtle color very expressive, an understated palate that somehow makes the design more accessible and meaningful. This one has a special place in my home this season, more or less front and center as you can see. For more take a look at the video. And please let me know what you think, I’d love to hear from you.

God Bless,
Jim Shore

My wife and I have been collecting nativities for quite some time now. We got our first Jim Shore last year as a gift. We are at approximately 278 nativity now. Maybe one day we will get this one. It’s absolutely beautiful.

I am looking for a particular design you made. Don’t know what it’s called, so can’t find it. A friend had it in his house and I want it for my mom.
It’s a house with Santa on the roof in his sleigh and reindeer. Please help!!
