The Crèche or nativity includes more than 40 hand-crafted figures including the Holy Family, angels, shepherds, three magi and villagers. The figures are displayed within an intricately carved 17th century French provincial corner bed.
The exhibit ran from November 27 – December 28, 2012 and will return in 2013 during the holiday season.
