the know how

We realize regularly cribs of order whose sizes vary as they are intended for the show of a private individual, up to pieces more important as the one who is installed every year in St Victor's abbey in Marseille.

In the realization of a crib of the scale of that of Avignon, the art consists in finding a balance between the natural elements, the houses, the wealth of details and arrangement of the characters. The stylistic composition consists in working the trompe-l'oeils and the perspectives so that the amazed spectator discovers the whole work few by little. Complexes enamel of small scenes which we discover to the bend of a copse or an alley. As for Christmas crib figures, decorations are completely realized by Christmas crib figures Marcel Carbonel, medal recipients with colors made by ourselves. We shall find in this composition more than 600 Christmas crib figures and accessories stemming from the production (from 2,5 cms to 15 cms) as well as pieces(rooms) conceived specially for the opportunity. This crib is exposed in the peristyle of the City hall of Avignon from the beginning of December to the beginning of January.
