Description

Moravian stars were traditionally made during the Advent season in nineteenth-century Moravian boys’ boarding schools.  Because of this historians believe the making of stars may have been a math lesson where students learned to draw and make geometrical shapes from paper.  One of the shapes was a pyramid.  By gluing the pyramids together a multi-pointed star was created.

Our Paper Moravian Star in Globe is created by a Winston-Salem, North Carolina artisan using that early method.  He meticulously cuts, folds, and glues each pyramid or cone to form a perfect Moravian star.  The 2.75″ diameter star is then placed in a clear, plastic globe.  Each star will arrive in a kraft paper box.
