This Wise Men piece is part of a 3-piece Quilted Nativity Set. Faline designed this collection for a Friends Of The Creche tour group that visited Cat's Meow October 2013. This group includes members from all over the world, and Faline wanted to create a nativity for them that represented something unique from her part of the world. She decided to incorporate quilt patterns into each design representing the Amish and Mennonite heritage that surrounds her.
Faline picked the King's Crown quilt pattern for the Wise Men piece because it represents the three "wise men" or maybe "kings" who came to visit Jesus in Bethlehem. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed...they saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:10-11
The Wise Men replica is handcrafted from ¾” thick wood in the U.S. The colorful details on the front and back also include our famous black cat mascot, Casper, either sitting or reclining. You can set this keepsake on a mantle, shelf, desk, or perch it on the molding above your window or doorway. Group it with other Cat’s Meows to create your very own Village.
