If you want to settle a Christmas crib at home, you need to find beautiful figurines, but where to buy santons in Provence ? These santons are made by a santons workshop, who was « Best worker of France » twice. They are meticulously designed to be realistic, and the faces are finely painted with attractive features.

All our santons are real Provencal Christmas santons. They have been handcrafted in terracotta and painted by hand for 3 generations.

Each subject is first modeled by hand to create the mold. In production, each subject is hand painted, color by color, in oils and acrylics.

hand painted terracotta figurines

The santons we propose will allow you to compose the nativity scene the Provencal way. You can buy several lots to get a whole Provencal village, or just a few santons to follow the Christmas tradition. The assortments are complementary.

Let your creative mind act, and involve your kids in the making of the crib. It's an occasion to share and that gives meaning to the party.

Creat your Christmas crib

The Christmas crib must be "the reflection of oneself" !!! It is not a fixed tradition where you have to adhere to strict specifications. But on the contrary, you can, by creating it, give free rein to your imagination and integrate your personal touches according to your passions and desires.

It begins to be installed on the first Sunday of the Advent period (the 4th Sunday before Christmas) and will be dismantled by candlelight on February 2.

The Christmas crib represents the life of a Provencal village and its inhabitants in the 18th century. So avoid representing all the professions, characters or animals that did not exist in a Provencal village at that time (footballer, lion, crocodile, etc.).

All the figurines in the manger must give the impression of advancing towards the baby Jesus, in order to bring him a present, and none must turn their backs on it.

Respect for proportions is very important ... Do not put a sheep larger than a character for example !!! Adapt the decorations and houses to the size of the chosen santons. A perspective can also be very interesting, when you have enough depth. The largest sizes of santons will be in front, and the smallest at the bottom, in height. To heighten your perspective you can use cardboard, stones, or kraft paper.

To make your decorations, use the elements which are found in nature: Moss, branch of cypress, olive tree, thyme or rosemary, stones, pebbles, cork bark, earth ... accessories, put a well, a bridge, a mill and a stable where the Nativity will be installed. You can also put cabins, country houses ... A river can be created with blue paper scratched with white paint or aluminum foil.

Good lighting will bring out the landscape, avoid multicolored garlands. You can also light your homes from the inside, trying to hide your bulbs as much as possible.

By respecting all this you will normally have a beautiful Christmas crib, made in the Provençal tradition.
