The cutting on this Nativity Scene was done with a procedure called antofret. Antofret is a method by which one board can be made to represent two or three, creating a “stand-out” raised relief of the design. This technique was developed in the early 1900’s by an Italian Priest, M. Antonini, and as a lasting reminder of his work this type of cutting was named after him.
When you move the pieces forward they lock open. When you go backwards the pieces come apart. The picture shows how the 3d effect is developed from the flat one that is like it is when it comes off the saw. Solid Poplar Construction
Stained Golden Oak Color. It measures 5”w x 4”h x 3/4” thick.
