Those windows are great!

Even though I am not a religious person, I love creche scenes. I have one French creche set in Hartford and an Italian set in Naples.

Beautiful work, and it's in such a stunning location!

Randy said...

Love the windows.

Dave said...

Like Jack I'm not religious but like the Christmas scenes and especially Christmas carols. But whenever visiting someplace I always visit the churches just to admire their architecture.

That is a beautiful nativity in a wonderful setting.

I so remember the beautiful créches in France when I spent the winters there. Lovely!

Creche scenes certainly bring out the Christmas spirit in many people!

They look to be almost life-size. Yes?

@ Jack and Dave: I'm not religious either but I enjoy everything in churches, as well as religious music and art...

@ Birdman: no, not quite. A bit smaller.

They are well dressed.

VP said...

Not a fan of these things, but these are really lovely!

I don't recall seeing a creche thingy inside of a church before...here it looks up against the back wall. Very interesting. I guess in the first shot Mary hasn't given birth yet, 'cause baby Jesus seems to have gone missing.

Happy Holidays!

Oops. I meant to respond to your comment on Ocala: That Santa was pretty disheveled. His beard was dull gray and scraggly and as he walked away his robe was open showing his regular clothes underneath. I would have fired him! :)

Looks wonderful Ciel, even better when you see the bigger picture.

Hope he isn't late for the big day!

Huge!

@ Llandudno: I have no doubt he'll be there on the 25th!

What a lovely scene they have recreated. I appreciate the closeup and also the wider view with the stained glass!
