This rustic wood plaque featuring Star of Bethlehem comes from trees grown and harvested in Ohio and is 100% made in the U.S.A. Each wood plaque is made from solid cedar, hewn and joined together by the hands of our Steubenville woodworkers, then digitally printed with hi-tech inks that slowly stain and permeate the wood with a scratch-free work of art.
Because these rustic plaques are made from real, solid wood, each piece may have minor cracks, knots, and other imperfections that add character and authenticity. As unique as human fingerprints, no two plaques are alike.
Smaller sizes of plaques are cut from single boards, while larger sizes are made up of several boards joined together.The Star of Bethlehem Bruno Piglhein ca. 1890
This simple yet moving work by 19th century German artist Bruno Piglhein captures Mary quietly holding her infant Jesus, with the angels around them in wonder and adoration. The Star of Bethlehem shines high above them in the night sky, pointing the way to the Christ child for all who will go to Him. Jesus’s humanity is expertly captured in His small newborn form, while His divinity is shown by His radiance and the angelic hosts that have come to be with their Lord. Our Star of Bethlehem by Bruno Piglhein rustic wood plaque quietly depicts the scene and meaning of Christmas both in the dead of winter and around the year. Find a spot in your home for this meditative plaque, or give it to a loved one to remind them of the joy and peace of Christ’s coming.
