A crib made out of sand decorates St Peter’s Square

An unusual scene will greet visitors to St Peter’s Square during this festive season. For the first time, the traditional crib will be made from tonnes of sand.

Artist Rich Varano said, “720 tons of sand in only fifteen days. It seems like quite a feat but for us it’s normal. We can make something so quick, so big.”

Over the last few weeks, Rich Varano, a professional artist from Florida, led a team of three artists from the Netherlands, Russia and the Czech Republic to work on this crib which is 5 and a half metres high and 16 metres wide. The scene consists of Joseph, Mary, Baby Jesus, angels, shepherds, various animals and the Three Wise Men.
