Kryza´s nativity scene

Undoubtedly the most famous exhibit in the Museum of Jindřichohradecko is the largest mechanical folk creche in the world - Krýza´s Creche, on which the author, local master hosier Tomáš Krýza, worked for more than 60 years. Th is unique work was rightly registered in the Guinness Book of Records. Th e creche contain 1398 fi gurines of people and animals, when 133 are movable.


Figurines in Krýza´s Creche are made of backing material (gypsum, sawdust, fl our and glue) or of wood. Th e originál mechanism, which was initially driven manually, distributes movement from a single electromotor.
