MOTHER OF PEARL HANDCRAFT

Mother of pearl art was introduced to the local Christian communities in Jerusalem and Bethlehem by the Franciscan father who came to the Holy Land during the crusader period around the twelve century, they are the ones who brought Italian artisans to teach the local Christians this art to make sculptures and emblems to glorify the greatness of our Lord Jesus and faith, the technique for designing a unique mother of pearl artifacts needs simple tools for cutting, sewing and filling but requires professional artisans with great skills and a lot of concentration, our artisans mastered this art and passed it on from father to son for many generations until they reach a level that each piece they produce has a significant symbol that reminds you with our lord love and brings peace to your heart and home that will always be cherished.
