Polish Creche

This is a traditional Peasant Creche unique to Poland.  In Krakow every year they have a festival and contest of szokpa or creche.  They are hand made and often contain images or scenes of the surrounding area.  They do include a manger scene, it is sometimes hard to find admidst the colorful castle images.  It was neat to see all the different variations made for this years contest.
