No Nativity scene is complete without Mary's gentle Donkey. According to tradition, Mary rode into Bethlehem on the back of a large donkey. The animal remained in the stable with the Holy Family as Mary delivered the Infant Jesus into the world. The wonderfully large donkey statue is designed by Heinimex and honors the role of the noble steed. The figure is part of the Christmas Night Nativity Collection.
The large donkey figure is hand painted and measures 49 inches tall. It is made of fiberglass, allowing it to be incredibly lightweight, yet durable. The finely constructed piece is suitable for indoor or outdoor use, and a special finish ensures it will maintain its beauty for years to come. Additional matching figures are also available.
