If you ve ever noted that time is marked B.C. (before Christ) or A.D. (Anno Domini or after Christ ), you ll recognize that the birth of Jesus Christ is perhaps the most pivotal point in human history. The famed Italian Della Robbia Workshop tells the story of this landmark nativity event within the sculpted proscenium of angels, arches and pillars. Pioneers of Renaissance art, the Della Robbia family artisans elevated the terra cotta art form by marrying it with painting and glazing techniques that emphasize light and ideal beauty. Our Design Toscano exclusive version is cast in quality designer resin to capture detail from the winged angel at the Annunciation to the fear on the face of the shepherd in the field, and is then hand painted in light-enhancing glazes, including the characteristic Della Robbia blue. Commemorate baptisms, births, anniversaries, weddings, ordinations and other special spiritual occasions with our meaningful statuary collection.
