"Behold, I bring you tidings of great joy." This lovely carved crystal pendant captures the movement and grace of an angel from the Annual Christmas Tree and Neapolitan Baroque Crèche, a beloved holiday tradition at The Met. The original terracotta figure is attributed to Giuseppe Sammartino (Italian, 1720– 1793) and was created in Naples.
The crafting of Christmas crèches first emerged in the Middle Ages as a devotional practice in Europe. In 18th– century Naples, large crèches gained momentum as sculptors added innovations, and the crèches became increasingly elaborate, with hundreds of exquisite figures.
