Art Of The Crèche
Nativities From Around The WorldBook - 2007
One of the most enduring and universal Christmas traditions is the cr#65533;che, or the Nativity scene: a representation of the story of Christ's birth. This beautiful book reveals the worldwide appeal and custom of the cr#65533;che and the diversity of creative expression displayed in this art form. Cr#65533;che artists featured include a first-generation American firefighter devoted to preserving the Spanish Colonial santos tradition; a woman who served in the Dutch resistance during the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands; a Jesuit who worked with Cambodian landmine victims and who carved a nativity with Khmer features; and a carver from New Zealand whose work is based on Maori traditions.
