The Medieval Sculpture Hall Transformed

… to Loretta Hines Howard, who along with her daughter and granddaughter, created the largest collection of 18th century Neapolitan creche figurines, now on display at The Met Museum.  Every year, we try to visit the Angel Tree, a 20 foot blue spruce decorated with cherubs and angels, which serves as a backdrop to this amazing nativity scene.  And every year, we delight in its beauty and artistry…
