Brilliant Polish Szopka
$35 – $55
- Many cultures celebrate the art of paper work, a humble material that we often take for granted – and in the hands of true talent it can be transformed into absolute visual magic. It is at its most astonishing in Poland, where glittering crèche sets – szopka in Polish - are a unique holiday tradition. Entirely made by hand of paper, card and foil, they are a rainbow-hued, shimmering, Disneyland-like evocation of the nativity complete with tall towers and flying banners. Here we offer three diminutive szopka, insanely intricate works of handmade wonder that have as much to do with art as they do with Christmas. We marvel at them year-round! Vintage artisan finds from our cabinet of curiosities. No two alike.
