Martin Scheible:
The Holy Family with Oxen, Donkey and Dog

Every year since 1992, the wooden nativity scene by Martin Scheible is on display during Christmas time at Ulm Minster. The sculptor from Neu-Ulm carved this ensemble with 26 figures from lime-wood in 1923. Only the central figures, Mary, Joseph and the Infant Jesus, were replaced with new versions eleven years later. In the Advent season of 2016, Museum Ulm was able to present a special exhibit on loan: the original version of the central figure group.

The cabinet exhibition included further sculptural works, drawings and portraits from the museum collection, presenting Scheible’s multi-faceted work.
