Contemporary nativity set
Continuing his research into the meaning and use of colour in objects, Sebastian Bergne has produced a contemporary nativity set. Each of the characters is a minimal wooden block that is recognisable by it’s colour, proportion and place in the composition. The project makes use of our learned experience from exposure to thousands of nativity images, toys and christmas cards over the years.
In 2013 a large scale version of the nativity was commissioned for the Chapel of the Royal Naval College in Greenwich.
In 2017 the Colour Nativity was included in the permanent collection of the museum, Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris.
Manufactured in painted beech wood. Dimensions: 26cm x 13.5cm x 3.5cm
The third edition (250) of the Colour Nativity is now in stock.
