Olive Wood Arts And Crafts For Years To Cherish. A Truly Great And Meaningful Gift Idea For A Loved One.

Olive Trees grow in many parts of the Middle East and some European countries, it is native to the Mediterranean region, tropical and central Asia and various parts of Africa. The olive trees especially in the Holy Land require a long, hot growing season to properly ripen the fruit, no late spring frosts to kill the blossoms and sufficient winter chill to insure fruit set. The Holy Land Olive Wood or Bethlehem Olive Wood has it's own unique richness and texture.

In the Garden of Gethsemane, in Jerusalem there you will find some of oldest olive trees that still exist. According to the Bible, it is believed that Jesus prayed underneath an Olive Tree in the Garden of Gethsemane after the Last Supper. This sacred tree is still in existence today. The Bible repeatedly refers to the Olive Tree as a symbol of peace, fertility, and prosperity. In the story of Noah's Ark, a branch from an Olive Tree was brought back to the Ark by Noah's Dove symbolizing peace. Also, on Palm Sunday, pilgrims carry Olive Wood branches commemorating the Lord's entry into Jerusalem.

Olive Trees grow in many parts of the Holy Land but the richness and textures of the Bethlehem olive wood is not matched. One of the reasons for that, is due to the fact that the oldest olive trees in Holy Land are located in the cities of Bethlehem and Jerusalem. The older the olive tree, the more grains and textures you will find in it's wood.
