Diari ABC - The crib is sentimental heritage of a family
Montserrat Ribes (Sabadell, 1949) has a predilection for scenes with children, in which he displays his art to endow the figures with a great load of tenderness. More than thirty years ago, he began to immerse himself in “this world” of nativity scenes, after some friends from the Castellar Nativity Scene Association asked him for some figures for their nativity scenes. Ribes had studied Fine Arts and was engaged in decorative sculpture, but that commission redirected his career. "What attracts me most about making nativity scenes is that you can create with a lot of imagination, they are figures that tell a beautiful story and can carry a great load of tenderness."
“It inspires me to think about how to tell the same story in different ways. The people who lived in Bethlehem at that time had the same dreams and problems that we can have now, "he says. For her, "the nativity scenes can reflect many feelings" and it is precisely the way of expressing these feelings, together with the technique, that distinguishes one creator from another.
In his opinion, "if the figures are of a certain quality, they must be part of the heritage of a family".
