Sand and Deliver

DSC_2668More Christmas excitement in Cavalaire!
DSC_2621DSC_2667A vast tableau of the Nativity has been created by a world-famous sculptor.
DSC_2627With a difference.
This magical scene, measuring 100 square metres, is constructed in sand!
DSC_261650 tonnes of sand was shipped from Mornas, in Vaucluse, 150 miles away, to be used in this wondrous work by Irina Sokolova, the renowned Russian sculptor.
Irina can be seen below, working on this masterpiece.
DSC_2609Sheltered from the elements – sun as well as rain – by a huge marquee, this fabulous exhibition is situated in La Place Benjamin Gaillard, in front of La Mairie, the Town Hall.
DSC_2626Entry is free, and the town is also providing hot chocolate and spiced bread for les gosses, the children.
And hot wine for big folk!

Santé and Cheers!

    • Last night was the big, official unveiling of this wonderful creation. There will be some updating to do on Xmas day I was told… Stay tuned. And did you see the magnificent elelephant in the background?
      Bright eyed kids walked through the exhibit in wonder. That’s what it’s all about.
