From the SWI archive How to make a matchbox manger

For decades Willy Kyburz worked as an IT specialist for an insurance company. Now retired, he devotes his time to his grandchildren and to making things out of natural materials. In summer he creates portable miniature gardens, which he sells at local markets. During the festive season, nativity scenes made of bark, stones and moss are his speciality. In 2011 swissinfo.ch visited Willy Kyburz in his home on Lake Zurich and watched him construct one of his miniature mangers. (swissinfo.ch, 2011)
