Gone is the time when we thought that the nativity scenes installed to decorate Christmas in all the houses were the same. Many of us have grown up with the same plastic or porcelain nativity scenes with their traditional figures that have decorated Christmas for so many homes in Spain for decades, but in reality there are many other options that we can find both in our country and beyond our borders. We have already seen some strange options such as minimalist nativity scenes or the one designed by Sargadelos.
Many of the original and different nativity scenes that we can find all over the world are now within our reach, whether we buy them on a trip or if we prefer to purchase them through an online store. Today we have in Decoesfera a selection of 9 rare nativity scenes that decorate Christmas somewhere in the world and the tip that I have in my living room and that you can see in the photo about these lines, bought in a handicraft market on one of my trips to Panama.
The Eskimo nativity scene and the Masai nativity scene have fewer figures than we are used to, but they are not less interesting. Over these are solidarity nativity scenes, because the photos on and under these lines can be purchased at the Intermon Oxfam online store.
Russian nativity scene
It is more than likely that the Russians do not use such a nativity scene to decorate their houses, but they also do not eat Russian salad and we still call it the same ... What matters is that the nativity scene in matrioska version It is really adorable.
I'm in love with Egyptian nativity sceneI bet many of you had never imagined it. Sometimes we think that the only ones that place Bethlehem are us and in reality in every place on the planet they have their version of the same story
Nicaraguan nativity scene
Very elaborate and elegant is this Nicaraguan nativity scene that also, interestingly, includes his version of the Magi, something that is less frequent when we look for nativity scenes outside Spain.
In the list of solidarity nativity scenes we also have the Mexican version and the African version, which we can see in the images. All versions of cribs around the world have something that identifies them with their place of origin. In fact it could almost be a game trying to guess where each nativity scene is.
Bethlehem of Playmobil
One of the rare cribs that have become more fashionable in recent times is the one of Playmobil which already decorates thousands of houses around the world. It has the advantage of being really a toy for children and it is also very versatile because of the mixtures of surrealist figures that it allows us to do with it.
DIY plasticine nativity scene
And if your dream nativity scene is not on the list, I leave you a DIY idea so that you can prepare it as you have it in your imagination with plasticine. You will spend it as children making it and you can look as good as the one in the image on these lines.
The truth is that it is difficult to decide, because all nativity scenes are very beautiful but I think I prefer the matrioskas or any of those proposed by Intermon Oxfan. And you, what is the rare version of Bethlehem that you like most?
