This is a digital reproduction of an image digitised and held by the Library of Congress.

The image depicts a wood carver in his workshop. Bethlehem has been known for its olive wood carving for centuries. Along with mother-of-pearl, olive wood devotional objects formed the basis for the emigration explosion out of the town in the 19th and early 20th centuries when Bethlehem merchants began to sell the goods around the world.

This image exists as part of the Bethlehem Crafts collection in the Library of Congress project of the Planet Bethlehem Archive.
