View Full Version : In view of a different Christmas crib

12-15-2011, 05:35 AM
Maybe the influence of our trip in Austria and Germany and their market as well as Thun little statues made the Sud Tyrol, within our Northern-East boundaries, but I made this experiment to possibly create and compose an original "presepio" (as we call the tradional catholic manger scene initiated by St. Francis which You may see in Italy as well as in Spain, Austria or Bavaria).
I hope to have enough time to set-up it with at least the minimum of the characters. The Magi would anyway have more time in case, since they're supposed to arrive on the 6th of January ... :D

BTW, this test was made referenceless, so I guess I may do a little better.

Thank You, dear Katie and Gary. I hope to show You the composition (I have to start as yet) in time for Christmas.

Very cute Caesar and the gold-like shoes looks quite convincing!

Thank You, dear Jibes.
I'm now in progress, whenever I've got some time, to set up the manger scene according to these little statues and style to duly make wishes and feast Christmas in its original and traditional meaning for us here ...
