A selection of Créches from over 30 countries, donated from one of the largest, and reputedly finest, private collections in the country, exhibited in the College’s beautiful Castle Gallery and Parlor decorated for Christmas. The collection includes Créches created in familiar and unconventional folk art methods using materials ranging from wood, clay, and straw to fabric and beads. Different cultural interpretations of the nativity scene are illustrated by differences in how the figures are dressed, what animals are present, and what gifts the Magi bring.
