santons : Nativité

Santons (Provencal: "santoun," or "little saint") are small (2.5-15 cm.) hand-painted, terracotta nativity scene figurines produced in the Provence region of southeastern France. In a traditional Provencal creche, there are 55 individual figures representing various characters from Provencal village life such as the scissors grinder, the fishwife, the blind man, and the chestnut seller.

The first santons were created by Marseillais artisan Jean-Louis Lagnel (1764-1822) during the French Revolution when churches were forcibly closed and their large nativity scenes prohibited. Lagnel crafted small clay figurines in plaster molds and let them dry before firing them.

A maker of santons is a santonnier, and the creation of santons today is essentially a family craft, handed down from parents to children, Santons are fashioned in two halves, pressed together, and fused. Hats, baskets, and other accessories are applied with an adhesive. When the figure is completely dry, it is given a gelatin bath in order to harden the figure further and to provide a surface for the application of pigments.Faces are painted first, then hair, clothing and accessories. Until the end of the 19th century, santons were air-dried rather than fired in a kiln. As a consequence, such figures were fragile and easily broken.Modern santons are generally fired in a kiln. There are two types of santons: santons d'argile (clay figures), and doll-like santons habille (clothed figures).

Since 1803, santonniers have gathered in Marseille each December to display and sell their wares at the Foire des Santonniers. Wikipedia

Santon means a sandy farmstead and Downham a homestead on a hill. This refers to the rise that the village is built on and separates it from the nearby parish of Santon situated across the river in Norfolk. Much of the land here originally belonged to Charles Sloane (later Lord Cadogan) and provides very easy walking routes on the sandy soil.

Designated a Forest Park by the Forestry Commission in May 1990, Thetford Forest provides the ideal setting for an interesting day out. This is the orange walk, one of several walks in the park and starts from the Forest District Office administrative centre at Santon Downham. The walk is marked throughout with orange topped waymark posts that can be easily followed.
