This is an ongoing project. A few years ago I built the structure out of scrap and stones and add something to it every year. Half the carvings were rough outs, the others from scratch. Living in Italy, the Presepio is a BIG tradition. The plan is/was to add a figure or two every year. Still need to paint the cow today and finish the Kings by the 6th of January…
Merry Christmas everyone!

This is a very worthwhile project; I admire your commitment to continue adding to it; changing, improving. Our lives should be the same when we meet the baby. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas.

That is so well done with the light in the Inn and the loft. I really like it.

Very nicely done and the start of a great Christmas tradition—a new figure or two every Christmas. Merry Christmas.

It’s really true that in Italy the presepio is a big tradition, and personally I really like this tradition so I make the presepio too every Christmas. I really like your project. Merry Christmas
