With a crib from Paray-le-Monial. It is life size and quite fine.
This is the place where St Margaret Mary received the vision of the Sacred Heart, and a more fitting message cannot be given again in our day.
I particularly like this King. He is prostrate (All nations shall fall prostrate before you O Lord) and almost pushes the gift to the Christ-child. He is not afraid of Him, but rather seems to be so in awe of the presence of Our Saviour that he cannot get too close.
