Fisherman and the Fishwife Gift Set - Size #2 / Elite

The Fisherman with his Net and the Fishwife Gift Set. The Fisherman and the Fishwife provide important sustenance to the people of Provence. 

This special Gift Set includes the Fisherman with his Net, the Fishwife, a 3-3/4" hand-shaved tree from the Erzgebirge, and a miniature tin pail from Bavaria.  All are tucked neatly into a gift box from My Growing Traditions.

Included is a My Growing Traditions card reading: "On the Mediterranean Sea, the port of Marseille, with its time-held fishing industry, is pivotal to the region of Provence. The Fisherman comes to the creche straight from the wharf, his net still slung over his shoulder. The Fishwife with proud humility brings a gift of not one, but two, basketfuls of fish."

The Fisherman is number 16 on the list of the top 20 Essential Santons for a Provençal Creche .  Enjoy our blog post on the significance of the Fisherman.
