Rated 5 out of 5 by Lou rose This is the one!
I have been searching for years for a beautiful nativity. I have finally found it. Thanks, Valerie.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Autumn16 Stunning!
This nativity is absolutely gorgeous. I gave it a prominent position on my living room mantle last Christmas, and I will be doing the same this year.

The colors, facial expressions, size, amount of glitter, everything is perfect! If I had to choose one word to describe this nativity, it would be elegant! The skin tones and the colors for their clothing are exceptional. I have waited literally eight years to buy a nativity set because I am so picky... If I could change anything about it, it would only be to add a few animals and maybe a palm tree or two. Five stars!
Rated 5 out of 5 by mccutie Much better than I expected
I have returned many Valerie Parr Hill items because they were of poor quality and cheap looking and I had my doubts about this set and almost didn't order it because of past experience. One of the things that I was particular about was the eyes painted on each character - they can ruin a whole set if not done carefully. This set was beyond my expectations and looks so much better than even in the live presentation. The eyes were painted beautifully with great detail, The gold glitter was not overly done and it was on the clothing, not their necks and faces which was also a concern. The colors of this set coordinated beautifully with silver as well as copper, cream and gold. I am very impressed with it.

This exceeded my expectations in size and presentation. The faces of the figures are very well done and not cheap looking or garish. The soft shades of color used on the pieces makes for a very serene and elegant Christmas display. Well worth the purchase price! Also the packaging was exceptional and each piece arrived in perfect condition.
Rated 4 out of 5 by HSteacher Beautiful but please be more historically accurate
A couple of suggestions to an already beautiful nativity...
First, there is no mention of female angels in the Bible yet all of the angels produced seem to be beautiful women-types. Please include male angels at least. I am not sure if gender is a "heavenly" concern, but I just like for these things to be more accurate as per Scripture. The Hebrew and Greek includes male names with male pronouns. Never a female pronoun or name is used.
I also wish a shepherd and at least 1 sheep was included. The shepherds probably arrived the night of the birth, but the kings were not at the manger scene. It was probably months before they came to Mary and Joseph with their gifts.
Thanks for considering these suggestions.

This Nativity is so beautiful. I had it displayed in my dining room during Christmas and got many compliments from visitors. I can't wait for Christmas 2016! This is just that grown up, sophisticated Nativity I've been looking for. The workmanship is great, the statues are a nice size. Buy this, you'll be happy with this purchase.
