A nativity scene (also called manger scene, crib or crèche) with figures is an integral part of Christmas in many families, one of the most important family celebrations ever. With a nativity scene you can playfully recreate the Christmas story about the birth of the baby Jesus in your own four walls, so that young and old can enjoy it.
We offer a wide range of nativity scenes: you can choose between different styles and types of wood, but also whether your nativity scene should be colored, natural or stained. We wish you a lot of fun browsing!

Nativity scenes from Lignoma - Quality & Durability
Our wooden nativity scenes are characterized by their absolute high quality. We only use selected woods and pay attention to an environmentally conscious production.
With a nativity scene from Lignoma you decide for:

- fast and uncomplicated ordering and delivery directly to your home.
How are our nativity scenes made?
Our wooden nativity scenes are all made in Val Gardena in South Tyrol (Italy) and are the result of masterly handicraft. With many years of experience and a lot of love for detail, we produce a large part of the nativities and the corresponding figures in our own workshop.
In order to offer you a wide range of different styles in our store, we also work closely with selected external painters, carvers and sculptors from Val Gardena. This way we can guarantee that our nativity scenes are carved out of durable wood of the highest quality, so that your whole family and many more generations can enjoy them.
What type of wood should I choose for my nativity scene?
In principle, this question only arises if you decide to buy a nativity scene in natural wood. Each type of wood has a special coloring. Therefore, you should think carefully about what kind of wood your nativity scene should be made of. In the best case it will fit perfectly into your interior design - or create a striking contrast.
We offer our nativity scenes in these wood types:
- Maple wood (figures) creamy white to yellowish (sycamore maple), reddish (Norway maple)
- Basswood (figures)
- Swiss stone pine wood (figures)
- Spruce wood (stables): colored light white to yellowish white
Which nativity svene fits me and my family?
Whether rural, simple, modern or oriental - in our online store we offer nativity scenes in very different styles. Which carving style you choose depends on your personal taste. Do you like it rather simple or pompous? Do you have a lot or little space?
Because it is also relevant where you want to place the nativity scene. On the windowsill in the living room you have less space available than under the Christmas tree. Our nativity scenes are therefore available in different sizes from 8 to 60 cm and larger. It is best to think about where you want to place the nativity scene in your home beforehand.
Are you celebrating Christmas with many children? A nativity scene is perfect for getting the youngest generation of your family excited about Christian history. So that your children and grandchildren can also play with the crib, it should be large and stable enough so that even the youngest can grip the figures properly.
The best thing is to browse through our offer in peace and be inspired.
Why are there nativity scenes?
We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ in a stable in Bethlehem at Christmas time. The first nativity scene was mentioned in recent history as early as 1562. Since then, the figurative representation of the Christmas story has been available in various shapes, colors and sizes.
With a nativity scene a special atmosphere spreads. Far away from the hectic pace of everyday life, a wooden nativity scene conveys peace, relaxation and that special feeling that only comes at Christmas.

Your nativity scene - incomplete without figures
What would the nativity scene be without the matching nativity figures? In our online store you will find a large selection of individual wooden figures in different styles, sizes and colors. So you can arrange your wooden nativity scene at Christmas according to your personal preferences or add new figures to your nativity scene little by little.
Or you can choose one of our Nativity sets and buy figures and stable together.
