Siurells Christmas Nativity Scene
Typical of Majorcan crafts, these small clay figurines made by women, bathed in lime and painted with colored stripes have a small whistle with which children played at fairs and save parties. They represent men with hats and the odd little devil or being fantastic.
Our nativity scenes and siurells are made in Marratxí, in the heart of the terra del fang, an area where most of the potters moved to because of the quality of the land in the area. There, our artisans have been modeling siurells for more than 100 years, following the tradition that passes from grandmothers to mothers and, finally, to daughters.
