Metropolitan Museum Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche

Courtesy of the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Thursday December 20 2012 9:30 - 17:30
The city’s most elegant tree is an exhibit unto itself, hung with more than 200 18th-century hand-sculpted Neapolitan crèche figures, which are wearing jeweled and embroidered costumes. Many of the ornaments are arranged in pairs, including an angel gesturing to a shepherd.
