German Christmas Pyramid: Nativity with Magi & Shepherds
One of Germany's most enchanting Christmas traditions is the candle-lit pyramid, which families often place in the front window of their homes for passersby to see. This pyramid is made by the artisans of the Richard Glaesser Company in Seiffen in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. This pyramid features the Holy Family on one side, star above them, and a shepherd and sheep on the other side. Around them process the Three Kings with a camel and another shepherd with sheep. Stars are painted on the main support.
This pyramid is handmade by the artisans of the Richard Glaesser Company in Seiffen in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. Stands about 11" tall x 7" wide x 6" deep. All elements are hand turned, hand carved, hand painted (though this pyramid features mostly natural-finish woods). The rising heat from the burning candles causes the propellor to rotate, resulting in the magical motion. We'll include a box of genuine pyramid candles from Germany, and we sell the candles year-round so you always know where to find them! Do not burn unattended; light candles only in a draft-free location.
