It is not only the biggest Christmas Crib in Prague, but also in the Czech Republic. It is a unique one though, by its used material – such material was used just in France and Belgium before. And what is it? In the Charles Bridge Museum of Prague, you can see the biggest Christmas Crib made of straw.
Twenty biblical characters statues are unique not only in size and material, but also by the specific way of processing. “It is my biggest art piece, I have been making it for six months.” said the author (his wife helps him) Andrzej Wrzecionek, a graduated philosopher.
The artists used hand-stitched ropes from hay and straw, which they fixed on the wooden frame of the characters. The Hay Nativity Scene will be possible to see in the Chapel under the Church of st. Francis of Assisi. Until 31st January 2008.
