Merry Christmas!

P1020990

What you see here is an old miniatures project, hand-made by my girlfriend’s grandfather. It’s a copy of an even older traditional South Tyrolean nativity scene.

K. and her siblings dug it out from the attic and put it into our hallway. It’s rather large – 80cm by 60cm – and quite heavy. Some of the figures are around 28mm! Others are smaller, so you can get a perspective/distance effect. Joseph and Mary are not here, because it’s not the 24th yet. There are two versions of them: a smaller couple, so you can see them arriving in the distance in the days before Christmas, and a large couple for the actual nativity scene.

It’s always nice to see that the family has an interest in miniatures…

I wish all of you relaxing holidays and hope you find time to do the things you love!

    Merry Christmas to you too! Lovely work there, I’ve been thinking about building a nativity scene for ages, Reaper even does a set.
