Handmade Olive Wood carvings and gifts from the Holy Land.
Bethlehem Art offers olive wood art direct from Israel. Our products are hand carved and at first glance, seem to be made of dead wood. Once you combine a closer look and a little faith, you can hear our art pieces narrate the story of our faith and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
The tradition of olive wood carving in the Holy Land has been handed down from father to son since the 12th century. Originally introduced by the Crusaders, the craft has been perfected by centuries of local master carvers. The carving wood comes from the olive trees that are over 700 years old, which give our products a unique beauty and quality that is not found in other wood.
