For many years I have been fascinated by camels and Wise Men. They together symbolize for me a very exciting mixture of mystic, gold, tinsel and joy.

Egyptian wall paintings is some of the very most beautiful, I know.

Animalblue is a fantasy animal, which arose spontaneously. It has got a free hand to live any kind of life it feels like.

Some time I wanted to make a series of pictures with the tendency of Egyptian wall paintings; and all the subjects, I just mentioned got together.
I started with “La Grada Familia”. As I was drawing, it came to my mind, that “La Grada Familia” became refugees in Egypt.
That is why The Three Wise Men suddenly after 2004 years decided not to bring “La Sagrada Familia” gold, incense and myrrh, but a motorbike and the survival kid: “ How to travel in Egypt?”
“La Sagrada Familia” turned into “ The Holy Refugees” my new interpretation of The Christmas Gospel.

“The Holy Refugees” is a series of 7 twin pictures (= 14 pictures)
It is drawn on a combination of handmade paper and used tea backs, which gives an atmosphere of old wall paintings. The size is about 25x 35 cm. They are framed with plexiglas, which makes it possible to send them, if it has got your interest.
The series is very poetic, beautiful, funny and surprising.
I have made a small copied book, with text in English, which I will send you.
It is possible to make it with Spanish text as well.

A long with that, I have also made two Art-money, which I will send you as file.
And I have made lots and lots of Christmas cards with aniMaldonna and the relishing Jesus.

I think, you have got the pictures of The Christmas Crib?
The crib consist of:
3 camels, 3 Wise men, 1 cow, Jesus, Maria, Josef, 1 angel, some goats, 1 motorbike, 1 book and a stable.
The figures are made out of paper, the stable is made out of stone.
The size of a camel is about 22 x 22 cm.
