Here are the props I found at Pompeii.

I hoped to find more busts of the julio-claudian emperors like the Ceasar bust I bought in Rome, but I had no luck. All I found was this little Augustus head.

Two plates. I’ll probably use the big one as a table.

Via San Gregorio Armeno

One of the biggest highlights in Naples was the Via San Gregorio Armeno. The street of the neapolitan christmas crib builders was a rich source of inspiration. Here are some pictures:

Wood and cork are the main materials of the cribs

Via San Gregorio Armeno
The scenes take place in the 18th century. The Holy Family usually plays only a minor role, in the focus are the ordinary people – market women, artisans, knife-grinders, marketers, tavern keepers.

The figures come in many scales.
