BOUCHES DU RHONE
Head to Arles for a full day dedicated to the visit of the Salon International des Santonniers. While the Provençal santonniers sought to draw the attention of the public to the quality of their work, to give the santon a new form of recognition, to look at it anew, to consider it as an object of artistic creation in its own right, this international show was created by the Santonnier Master Marcel Carbonel in 1958.
Today it is an artistic reflection of this profession and of the wonderful world of the « crèche ». You will discover the latest creations and trends, the treasures of collectors and crèches in the Cloister of Saint Trophime (XII and XIII century).
