A Gozitan crib with a difference, is currently on display in St. George`s Square, in Victoria Gozo, organised by the Youth Association within the La Stella Philharmonic Society.
The crib, as required by tradition, features the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Gozitan scene. In this Nativity crib, Our Lady and St. Joseph are dressed in traditional Gozitan costumes.
The Youth Association said that another attraction of this crib is the introduction of Gozitan characters that are in their majority synonymous with the city of Victoria. There are several characters depicted and in particular this year, there is one representing the pastern Pope Francis as one of the Tree Kings on display.
The characters featuring in this crib are all made by a young Gozitan artist Michael Cutajar Zahra. The crib is being exhibited at the Radio Station, 'Lehen il-Belt Victoria' in St. George's Square. Entrance is free. Everyone is invited to visit.
