Albert Einstein, the Dalai Lama, Pablo Picasso, Nelson Mandela and Dracula, politicians like Barack Obama and Angela Merkel or sportspeople from around the world like Messi or Rafael Nadal, are the figures that can be bought on the Internet or at Christmas fairs such as that of Santa Llúcia.
The caganer, a typical figure of Catalan Christmas scenes traditionally represented by a peasant in a Catalan hat and a pipe between his lips, above all symbolises joy, and some say that not to have one brings bad luck. In fact for many politicians, sportspeople and famous, it is a real honour to have their own caganer figure. The Caganer.com company creates and markets all kinds of caganers desde from its workshop in Torroella de Montgrí, Girona. Every piece is carefully designed and transformed in an original plaster mould, which will be used to make the ceramic caganers.
