It Figures

O Little Crown Of Bethlehem

A school handyman has carved a complete nativity scene from old classroom desks. Chris Reeves used a pile of 1960s science desks destined for the tip to create amazing wooden figurines of Mary, Joseph, and Angel Gabriel. The crib took two months to complete and will now be blessed by a priest. To see the photograph, go to Ananova.

FOOTNOTE: Sheer class.
