Nativity scene in a village church

Couple of years ago we were asked to do a whole big nativity scene for a little baroque church in a village of Rovišće near Bjelovar. The scene was 3,75x2,00 meters big and it was made in 7 pieces that perfectly clicked with one another- like lego's :)
There are some pictures from the making of...  Later we made a big sky that went all along the scenary with many golden stars, and of course a big bright one.

All the buildings are handcrafted from foamy cement, they are hollow inside, so they can glow from inside.At this stage the lights were only put there for testing purposes, afterwards the wire was covered with grass and moss.

Not all the figurinas were in the same size,   so we put the smaller in the back to create additional perspective.

The camel is approximately 35cm high and it was originally belonging to the very old wooden nativity set in  Varaždin cathedral. We restored the original wooden piece and got the right to make mould and produce it for further selling.
