Ten of Spain’s best nativity scene makers, including José Francisco Guilloto, José Ángel Oviedo, José Luis Mayo, the Cerrada brothers and Ana María Moya, have painstakingly carved and hand-painted each of the figures in these three nativity scenes which have been designed by the master artisan and winner of the Trophy of the Spanish Federation of Nativity Scenes, Andrés Fernández García. The same can be said of the buildings, animals, tools and furniture and of the miniature pigeons, pigs, cages, carts, tools, etc. The sand, moss, lichen, lichen and plants used to recreate the landscape are all natural. The LED lighting is designed to accentuate every nuance. The scenes depicted - the Annunciation; the search for the inn in Bethlehem; the Nativity; the Annunciation to the shepherds - are a respectful representation of tradition. Everything in these three El Corte Inglés nativity scenes is made with the utmost care to share with the public of Madrid one of its great Christmas passions.
