My World Nativities from around the world and RT

 For many years my family and I have collected nativities I am now only collecting from different countries
last year a friend asked me to display them in a community event and I did it again this year

these first four pictures were the majority of what we have received over the years I brought them and a talented lady displayed them for the event

I want to remember the event  in pictures because after we closed it down that same day I gifted many of them to loved ones I really would like to reduce my STUFF
I definitely kept the ones from other countries and ones handmade especiallyfor us

these two are some other rooms


here starts the individual ones most from different countries that caught my eye

O come all ye faithful is one of my  favorite carols

the story continues on in this one




such strong emotion

I hope you can read all the countries



these next three were all in the White room



these nativity members look so human :)

this one is a real angel










nuts and bolts



China

Madagasgar


this one is so huge it took two pictures


guess where this one is from

this one is for Ruby Tuesday and they all depict the birth of our Savior the reason for Christmas

Wow. I think my favorite one is the fourth picture after Hailey. Is it tin? Silver? So pretty and unique. Is that one yours?

Every year I want to go and see the nativities, but we never have. :o( Something always comes up, unfortunately.

Hello,

This caught my eye because I work at Loyola University Museum of Art in Chicago. I am intern there. Anyway, each winter (or at least for the past two years) we hold an exhibition displaying our collection of Creches (Nativity scenes) which were donated to us. They come from all over the world. I think we have over 200 of them. The show is still on display, I believe, so you should go check it out! Otherwise, it will be around next year, too. I would love to know which countries some of yours come from! You can check out the website to find out more about the Creche show we have right now. www.luc.edu/luma
