Portico - Portique - Size #2 / Elite

Portico - Portico

Carbonel does not include the trees. The tradition in Provence is for the family to go out into the woods each year in the weeks before Christmas to collect natural materials to add to the creche scene: branches, twigs, lichen, mosses, stones, pebbles, sand, etc to naturalize the nativity landscape. Thus the Portico has a small hole at the base to insert a "tree." What is nice is that you can follow the tradition of Provence, or you can use a rosemary or thyme twigs to frame the Portico.An arched stone portico in traditional Provence.
