La crèche


This crèche at the Basilique Cathédrale de Saint-Denis is one of the most unusual I've seen anywhere in Paris.  If I didn't know better, I'd think les petits enfants had been rearranging the figures.

Simple and therefor very moving.

My guess is that the les petits enfants have had a hand in the new location of the figures! Ha That is so cute and reminds me of my granddaughter who used to move everything around on my side tables. Ha I never knew where everything would end up! Ha :)

Well, I've certainly never seen a crèche quite like this before—either the figures or the placement!

Each figure looks like it meant a lot to the artist too. I used to live where La Nacimiento was more prevalent than the "tannenbaum."

Yes .. it does look as if someone has been playing chess with the pieces.

I had not visited your Paris bl0g for a long long time. How could I have missed all these beautiful pictures?
I like this one in particular. Very unusual as you mention.
The magic of Christmas!
Have a wonderful season and lots of family moments! And a Merry Christmas!

Different, but nice! Sometime it´s good to keep things simple... Have you ever seen the huge crèche at Notre Dame?
