  • All the simplicity of people are portrayed in this work simple miner and full of art. The crib has hundreds of characters typically miners. To be moved around, they narrate the life and passion of Christ in scenes to fill the eyes. The Pipiripau has a beautiful love story since it began to be built in 1906 by Raimundo Machado de Azevedo, the mastermind of the crib. Everything seems to still be under construction. Kids and adults love. Is show.
