New Nativity Available

Filipino woodcarver Frank Cajumban has been working with Elevita to sell his 17-piece nativity sets.  Because of the number of pieces, Elevita does not stock this beautiful set, although it is available for special order.  Please email if you are interested in purchasing this treasure, and we can arrange for Frank to directly ship you a wooden crate!

Filipino Woodcarver Shares Photos of His Process

It is amazing to think that Arman's intricate nativity figures are made from these tools!

Here Arman Cagayat begins one of the palm trunks--a signature piece of his set.

Holding the piece tightly with a rope, Arman is able to carve the perfect grooves.

It is clear that Arman's three daughters enjoy "supervising" his work!  Well done, Arman!!
