The Christmas Tree and the Creche

The Christmas tree and Neapolitan Creche were unveiled today in the Medieval Art wing. With the eighteenth-century Spanish choir screen as its backdrop, the tree stands proudly, adorned with tiny electric candles and dozens of angels in colorful flowing robes. Surrounding the tree is a miniature scene depicting every detail of the Nativity story, including the Three Kings (or Wise Men), all the choirs of angels, shepherds, animals, even an Indian prince!

  1. What a remarkable journey you are on! I think that you idea is a brilliant one and should inspire many an art lover to visit the Met more oftenl. Can't wait for you to give me a tour when I visit.
