This beautifully detailed large advent calendar depicts a workshop in the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains) region of Germany, know for its unique and skillfully made wood works. The craftsman works late into the night creating Christmas toys and decorations for the town including a pyramid, nutcracker, German smoker, Christmas tree ornaments, carved animals and nativity figures. The Kirche von Seiffen (Church of Seiffen) can be seen through his workshop window.
The detailed picture has 24 little doors to open. Each door has a little picture behind it. The tradition is to open one door each day from December 1 thru December 24. Children love to open a door a day as they count down to Christmas.
