Vat­i­can Christ­mas scene

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NEWS -

St. Peter’s Basil­ica forms the back­drop Fri­day for a Nativity scene and a Christ­mas tree dur­ing the of­fi­cial un­veil­ing cer­e­mony at the Vat­i­can. The Nativity scene is made of sand and sculpted by an in­ter­na­tional set of artists. About 700 tons of sand have been shipped to St. Peter’s Square for the sculp­ture, which is the cen­ter­piece of the Vat­i­can’s Christ­mas­time dec­o­ra­tions.
