The remarkable nativity scene by Henk and Anna Jonker.

kerststal dec 2011Remarkable nativity Scene on display

From 8 December onwards the remarkable nativity scene by Henk and Anna Jonkers will be on display again at the Museumcafé. This nativity scene distinguishes itself from other scenes by the use of a extraordinary material: leather!

Shoemaker

All figures - humans as well as animals- have been made of leather or a combination of leather and other materials. Except for the presence of the obvious figures like Joseph, Maria, the baby Jesus, the three kings and the sheperds with their herds, Henk and Anna have extended this nativity scene with mules, camels and also a shoemaker. As a result the scene has become a sensational showpiece that keeps on fascinating whoever starts looking at it!;

The nativity scene is on display at the Museumcafe from 8 December to 6 Januari 2016
