Item Details

a Located in Steyr Austria, Christkindl Church is built on a place of pilgrimage to honor the

Christ child.

a In 1695, Ferdinand Sertl placed a small wax figure of the Christ child in a hollowed area

of a tree.

a Sertl paid homage to the Christ child by often visiting the statue, which was attributed to

curing his epilepsy.

a News of the miracle spread fast, and people traveled from all over to receive blessings.

a Within a decade, as more and more of the faithful came to visit the statue, it became

necessary to build a church

a Completed in 1725, Christkindl Church was built around the tree and continues to attract

many visitors each year.

a A baroque style church, it designed by Carlo Antonio Carlone and built under the

supervision of architect Jacob Prandtauer.

a The ornate design of the church in Austria incorporates the living tree into the altar,

showcasing the niche and the statue.

a Insert with historical information included.

a Our version includes 5 to 6 clocks on the 2 front towers.

a Inscribed above the door: Nolite Peccare In Puerum Translation: 'Do not sin against the

boy' A- from: Genesis: 42:22
