This tiny world was part of one of the nicest 'prespju's" we saw this Christmas here in Malta. Each figure is about two and half inches tall. The detail given to these large Christmas scenes is impressive. Sometimes they take up a whole room complete with twinkling stars, running water, little sheep whose heads dip down to nibble the grass. Its a very traditional hobby especially among men, have heard that they sometimes spend the entire year slowly putting it together. Not a bad hobby to have as a retired person and then you get to show it off in the holiday season. I wish I had taken more photos but we had three hungry whiny kids with us so I managed to only snap a few shots, which in no way does it justice!
