Wise man Balthazar

The wise man Balthazar is the Moorish king and brings myrrh to the child king, to symbolize "the man". It also symbolizes youth and the African continent.

He must be accompanied in the crib of the king Melchior and the king Gaspard.

Handmade 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.

hand painted terracotta figurines

The three wise men

The three wise men (Balthazar, Melchoir and Gaspard) must first be set back and then be moved forward each day to arrive in front of the baby Jesus on January 6, the day of the epiphany.

According to the Gospel according to Matthew 2.1-2, "Magi from the East came to Jerusalem ...". At the time, they were not kings but magi, priests or scholars from Persia.

Their number represents the holy trinity (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit), the 3 continents known at the time (Europe for Melchior, Asia for Gaspard and Africa for Balthazar) as well as the three ages of life (youth, middle age and old age).

The gifts they bring to the baby Jesus are also symbolic (myrrh, a plant used for embalming, represents man; gold represents kings; incense represents God and divinity).
