Folk artist Philippe Roy, a native of Saint-Philémon in the Bellechasse region of Québec, devoted more than 40 years of his life to creating this crèche, or nativity scene. Made of carved polychrome wood, it depicts more than 40 figures and animals—from the mundane to the unexpected. Learn more about the exceptional woodcutter, log driver, and farmer behind this inimitable and poignant work.

Open Monday December 23 and 30.
