The Scenes

The Wise Men's Palace

The children were led into a sumptuously decorated room where two of them plus the leader were dressed in rich costumes. Around the room were various gifts suitable for a baby. Children were asked to choose the gifts the three would take for the new baby king. The leader explained the actual gifts taken and why.

The palace was created using saris, rich fabrics, exotic fruits and pot pourri.
