Instead of

dealing with the crowds the day after the Thanksgiving bacchanalia of turkey overdosing, I took a ride to Mepkin Abbey, the Trappist monastery near Charleston for their fifth annual Creche Festival:

I was drawn to the faces on this Bolivian Creche.
The figures are barely two inches high.

This was just so pretty.
There were 42 Creches on display. The experience was truly spiritual-it was almost awe-inspiring in which each artist took the same idea and brought forth an individual representation.
