Let the Olivewood from the Holy Land light up your life.
Candle Holders are individually carved from a single unique piece of beautifully grained olive wood pruned from the olive trees around Bethlehem the birthplace of Jesus. Notice the detailed carving of fins, eyes and mouth. Christians have been carving handicrafts like this for hundreds of years, originally for pilgrims and more recently tourists visiting the Holy Land. Each craftsman receives a fair price to support their family and Christian community.
