This unique nativity is made by J. Kirsz the perennial first place winner in the miniature Krakow Nativities competition. The nativity has three levels. On the first level in a courtyard fenced out with golden fence are the Three Kings bearing gifts and in the middle is the legendary Lajkonik a half man half horse figure that has saved Krakow from the invading Tatar army in the 13th c. On the second level  flanked by two stained glass windows is the Holy Family all with halo around their face. On the third level are three church spires  with stained windows, the central with double dome and the Polish eagle on top flanked by a black pointed spires on each side with the Polish flag.  Amazing detail and artistry.
