Balthazar, is one of the Three Wise Men appearing at the birth of Jesus. This life size statue was created to accompany the 50" Nativity set crafted by the Italian Fontanini workshop. Saint Balthazar is traditionally referred to as the King of Macedonia and gave the gift of myrrh to the baby Jesus. This sculpture of Balthazar is finely hand painted one at a time each may vary slightly. Sculptures of the nativity are superb in quality and hand created in Bangi De Lucca by the Fontanini artisans. Each one of the pieces from small to large are works of fine art.
