Gahlenz Holzkunst Incense Smoker - Shepherd

Shepherd Smokers have always been the most popular figures in our Smoker Collection. Perhaps because they remind us of the shepherds in the Christmas story. Or perhaps its because Shepherds are known for their gentle caring for their flocks and so they make a beautiful and symbolic gift.

I especially love the colour of this figure. It's handcrafted by the artisans at the Erzgebirgische Holzkunst Gahlenz studios. I also love the curvy lines and the small details like the real twine rope in the Shepherd's hand, the metal hook to his crook and the texturing of the wood to make the little lamb look woolly.

The Smoker figure is a traditional "toy" crafted by hand in the Ore Mountains of eastern Germany. The figure is made in two parts. Carefully separate the upper and lower sections and place a cone of smoldering incense in the belly of the figure. The festive smelling smoke curls up through the Shepherd's mouth like pipe smoke!
