The Christ Child is always the center of attention
The depictions of this New Testament event have one thing in common. The birth of the Christ Child, Jesus Christ, is always in the foreground. Since no one had room for the strange couple, or at least pretended not to have one, they retreated to a special kind of accomodation. The Son of God was born in the stable and as a newborn child was placed in the manger on the straw. This modesty and simplicity is particularly well expressed by these wooden figures. Carved from wood and painted by hand, they create the balancing act between this simplicity and the splendor of art.
The son of God in the simplest circumstances
It is precisely this modesty that inspires the artists again and again to depict this event figuratively or spatially. Strictly speaking, the minimalist variants get by with three figures and the crib. These then naturally include Mary, Joseph and the child. By the way, this is also written in the bible. One knows it in this way also by innumerable illustrations. Every child paints in this way even in elementary school.
Cribs in different sizes
Without exception, the artists have made every effort to present their Nativity scenes in a very charming and simply beautiful way, just as the Christmas story itself is. Therefore, the spectrum of the nativity scenes ranges from Christmas purism to large pictures full of devotional activity. Baroque masters and other artists of different art and style epochs show themselves almost lavishly Carved by master craftsmen, figures made of wood get their very special, especially warm charisma.
