The first-ever Nativity scene recorded in history was created by St. Francis of Assisi in the 13th century. St. Francis was concerned that the meaning of Christmas was becoming lost as most people were more focused with the ritual of gift giving than the true message of Christmas. Nativity sets as we know them today found their roots in the 1300's. They started as display pieces for Italian churches. In the mid-1500's, Nativity sets began to appear in the homes of wealthier citizens.
McHarp replicates the beauty and reverence of ancient and historic memorials from around the world. Due to the hand casting and proprietary staining process, each plaque is unique. Each piece comes with a hanger embedded in the stone and a descriptive tag describing the original stone, explanation of the design or information on where the piece is located.
