The shepherds are very important characters in the manger, because they were the first to be informed of the birth of the Savior. They are instructed by the Angel Gabriel to go and share the good news, and have come a long way to get to the stable.
To keep the consistency of your Christmas crib, they must be accompanied by the angel santon and sheep. Moreover, the more sheep there are in your flock, the more beautiful it will be, because you can give an effect of movement and realism.
Christmas village figurines
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.
Recreate the nativity scene!
In the crib, each character has a specific function to help recreate the Nativity scene surrounded by a village in Provence. Apart from the subjects of the stable, unavoidable, old Provencal trades are represented: baker, miller, shepherd, garlic seller, washerwoman, fisherman, and many others.
In fact, it is about reviving a village as if Jesus had been born in Provence: the angel Boufarèu (blower) announces the news to the shepherds. All the inhabitants converge on the stable to see the Newborn. They cross the hill, with their baskets of crops, their animals, go through the olive groves, and all the Provençal landscapes are represented.
So let yourself be transported by the magic of a Provençal crib, and immerse yourself in the world of santons, jovial and cheerful figurines. The spirit of Christmas is already blowing through your home!
