Crèche provençale

Crèche provençale. Noêl 2004, dans l'Église Saint Martial, Châteauroux

Ci-jointes les photos d'une crèche provençale exposée à l'intérieur de l'église Saint Martial, durant les fêtes de fin d'année 2004.

A Provençal crib

Those shots represent a Provençal crib, which was housed by Saint Martial church during Christmas 2004.

Note : "Provençal" is the French adjective that refers to a French south-eastern area, which is located just next to the French Riviera.

Such a crib, which is composed of a series of santons, can generally be admired during Xmas times in French south-eastern churches. As Châteauroux is located in the center of France, such a scenery is atypical.
