Celebrity Christmas Caganer

The Catalan traditional Caganer has been given a celebrity make-over in time for this year's festive season . . . The miniature figurines - which translates as 'defecator' - depict a crouching person with pants around ankles, to symbolise fertilising the ground. But this year, as well as the classic red beret, white shirted peasant, a veritable VIP ladies n gents' worth of the good and the great are captured in full stool passing pose. Leading specialist manufacturers Caganer.com present 40 new figures including: US President Barack Obama, soccer stars such as Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, pop icons Freddie Mercury and Madonna, historical figures like General Charles de Gaulle and Che Guevara, sc-fi fantasy characters Gollum,C3PO and V For Vendetta, artist Antoni Gaudi, screen legend Humphrey Bogart and even Kings Felipe de Borbon and Letizia. The Famous Fecal Festive Forty are all designed and handmade at the Torroella clay workshop and completed in cooperation with a number of organisations working with people with disabilities - with the users of these centres contribute to the hand painted figures. Since the eighteenth century, the tradition of the Catalan nativity scenes has featured the ubiquitous Caganer. A beloved figure who, it was believed, led to good fortune, luck, health, happiness and peace of mind - as well as fertile crops for the following year! Caganer.com have remained true to this tradition since ceramicist/potter and "pesebrista", Anna Maria Pla,founded the company in 1992. Each season they create new figures paying tribute to celebrities, real and fictional. None are intended as a joke, but a tribute.

Finally, decorated by hand with acrylic paint.
