The sculptor César was invited to design a Christmas nativity set for 1966 at Orly airport. He invited his friend Roger Tallon for this extravagant nativity set where the Baby Jesus babbles in a television among bottes of straw, while around him, the saints are incarnated by character-seats. Many stars of the time, such as Brigitte Bardot, but also César and Roger Tallon appear on the anthropomorphic seats.
