Crib making is a popular tradition in the village of Xagħra. They are made in all sizes from matchbox to larger than life. Various materials are used in their production. The Xaghra Branch of the Society of Christian doctrine (M.U.S.E.U.M.) excelled in giving a new life to various discarded materials and objects in the making of a large mechanical crib.
The crib knows its beginning in 1969. Old washing machines, disused timing belts, bicycle chains, used cardboards, plastic caps, old clothes, discarded pieces of wood and parts of broken furniture and similar materials have been used to build this crib. During a visit on site, Mr. John Attard, Mr. Peppi Theuma and Mr Joe Borg, the masterminds behind this project, opened the ‘insides’ of the crib and explained in detail the construction process involved in the making of the crib. It is clear how every object is meticulously and very cleverly adapted and used, giving it a new and actually useful purpose. Indeed, a great way of reducing litter!!
