Some Maltese Nativities

Many people in Malta create an elaborate Nativity every Christmas, some of which include the whole town of Bethlehem, where Jesus was born. They use all kinds of materials, mostly paper-mache, cardboard, and other inventive objects to give a rugged look to the countryside. 
A typical exhibition was displayed back in 2010, my last visit to Malta before Christmas time, and these are just a few of the over 100 Nativities on show. The last photo shows the entire hall with the exhibits encased in glass.
