Heide Nativity Figures - born of tradition

The company Heide was founded in 1970 by Heinrich Demetz
and has specialized in the production of Nativity figures over the years.

Uniqueness and highest quality. Our philosophy and primary goal is to preserve the tradition of the nativity scene and to create a new dimension of their representation, which symbolizes the birth and life of Jesus Christ in an expressive and realistic manner.

With our works we want to complement traditional woodcarving and painting with modern processing techniques and create pieces of art that are unique in their type and execution.
