    Background: The "SANTONS" have been for ever the real art of the Provence the way of making them, only by hands is transmitted in the same families from generations to generations. The well known potters of Vallauris have taken the basis of their art from the "Santonniers". Made in clay only found in that region, the attitudes and the fresh colours of those little figurines makes all their value. The costumes, attitudes and colours are traditions too like their names "La vieille Virginie, Le Meunier, Le Berger, Le Paysan etc." The time before Christmas gives more work to the Santonniers in order to satisfy all the requests, most of the families building their own creche at that time.
