THIS IS AN EARLY GIFT FOR CHRISTMAS FROM MY MOM :)
OH I LOVE THIS PYRAMID I HAD TO TAKE PICS TODAY BEFORE I
PUT IT AWAY TIL THE ADVENT TIME...IT IS ALL HANDMADE, IT LOOKS
Christmas pyramids were first produced in Germany's Ore Mountains. The mechanism that moved ore from deep in the mine to the earth's surface inspired woodworkers to craft the pyramids spinning carousel. Traditionally, the heat from burning candles moved the pyramid's blades, which caused the carousel and its beautifully carved figures to slowly turn.
Käthe Wohlfahrt artists carry on this tradition, designing, carving and assembling these moving symbols of Christmas.
