Very colorful, but not my favorite one. The tableau of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus is magnificent indeed. A wood nativity from Krakow would be a nice addition.....if you need another nativity from Krakow! :-)

It is fascinating to see the extreme differences between the different nativities! I've been in that salt mine, in '92 and we thought it was amazing and beautiful, almost one of the wonders of the world. My mother in law toured it in the twenties when she was in Poland for the wedding of a relative and I've always wondered what it was like at the time, as far as lighting and safety for the visitors, etc.....


Have you read The Kitchen Madonna by Rumer Godden? A children's story,; shiny chocolate papers are involved in the creation of an icon. My first thought when I saw this nativity.
