Merry Christmas!


This creche is from the Schloss Charlottenburg Christmas Market. It's one of the biggest and prettiest in Berlin and they always have a nice manger scene. These figures were handmade by a local chainsaw artist. I always wonder how they can get so much detail with a chainsaw.

Enjoy the rest of your Christmas, hopefully surrounded by friends, family and those you love.

  5. Its funny that you see the german tradition of woodcarving from the Black Forest in these figures. Merry Christmas to you and your family too.

  11. Slightly belated Merry Christmas, Hal!
    That's very nice chainsaw work. I'd guess, also, that other tools were employed to smooth out and add detail to these sculptures.

  12. I've watched those people carving ice sculptures but they have the aid of chisels and blowtorches. How someone can do this on wood with a chainsaw is beyond me.
