One of the finest examples outside of Naples, the Art Institute’s spectacular crèche features over 200 figures—including no less than 50 animals and 41 still-life objects—configured in an ornate cabinet with a painted backdrop. Those familiar with the Nativity and the story of Christmas will recognize a handful of central characters up front: Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and the three wise men, for instance. But as just a glance will tell you, the scope of this tableau reaches far beyond biblical sources. Find as many as you can with this Advent Calendar.
