Indications to the measures of the woodcarvings from our workshops

Back


Nativity scene

The indicated sizes refer to the size of the crib-figurines (the reference point is the actual size of St. Joseph). The size of the animals is adapted and generally kept smaller, because otherwise they would appear too big (e.g. if the elephant was represented with its natural proportions, it would be too large for this nativity scene).
The Gloria angel is also represented a little smaller than the St.Joseph figurine (approximately two thirds of its size).

Stables for Nativity scenes

The indicated sizes refer to the size of the crib-figurines (the reference point is the actual size of the St. Joseph figurine). In the exact descriptions you also find the size ratio figurines / stable height x width x depth

Angels’heads

The measures refer to the height from top to bottom overall.

Crucifixes

The first indicated size refers to the size of Christ’s body from head to toe; the second size, labeled with †, is the size of the cross. The cross is generally twice as long as the size of Christ’s body, except for romanesque crucifixes, which are a little shorter.

Standing crucifixes

As with the crucifixes, the first indicated size refers to the size of Christ’s body from head to toe; the second size, labeled with †, is the size of the cross. The base is adapted in size, form and style to the chosen crucifix, so to create a harmonious composition. In the exact descriptions you also find the size ratio crucifix lenght / base height x width x depth

Christs’bodies

The sizes as used in the descriptions are always measured from head to toe.
