DOOR OF THE BASILICA OF THE NATIVITY realized with lost wax technique


Our foundry produced the bronze portal installed in the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlem, an event of worldwide resonance.

Artistic foundry BMN Arte, together with the sculptor Roberto Ioppolo, had the honor to realise the Door of the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem.
This door, realised by the lost wax casting technique, highlights the great event of the incarnation depicted in the central star and surrounded by equally significant subjects such as Annuciantion of the Angel to Vergin Mary, dream of Joseph when reassured to pursue his spousal life project with Mary, Adoration of sheperds and Magi and also two emblematic figures to the land of jesus, that is: St. Francis, pilgrim in the Holy Land at the time of the Islamic settlement, and Supreme Pontiff, Pope John Paul II, portrayed during is visit to Bethlehem.
The symbol of the famous star lighting up the Christmas nights of Veronese people, placed in Piazza Bra, as testimonial of the International Exhibition of nativity scenes, inside the church of St. Catherine adjacent to the Basilica of the Nativity, showing this way the Veronese affection towards the people of Bethlehem.
