Travelling Magic

Price: 811.00 VAT included

The three statuettes, of the travelling Magi, are traditionally added to the crib on the night before Epiphany. Gaspar, Melchior and Balthasar, are represented in rich clothing and hold the three gifts to be brought to the baby Jesus: gold, frankincense and myrrh.

In this version, the three figures are shown travelling, to be placed in the crib during all the festivities, and each day they are brought a little closer to the hut.

Curiosities

According to some interpretations, the crib figurines of the three Wise Men would represent the continents known at the time

  • Melchior is represented as elderly, with a long beard and carrying incense, as a reminder of the divinity of Jesus, and would come from Asia
  • Gaspar, younger, carries the symbol of royalty, namely gold, and represents Europe
  • finally, Balthasar is the magician from Africa, naturally dark in colour, carrying myrrh, used for embalming and therefore a reminder of the future death of Christ.
