Unveiled on December 2, 2011, this work includes seven pieces for the Christmas season. The larger-than-life figures (some are 7 feet tall) were carved from solid blocks of polystyrene. The stable is about 14 feet high. The homes and storefronts tower about 21 feet at the highest point. Special thanks to the lighting and stage crew at Bob Jones University for all their work.
