Pyramids from the Rothenburg Christmas Workshop®
It is understandable that the Pyramid was modeled after a machine used in underground mines to convey ore, since they were invented by miners. The first movable pyramid dates back to the year 1850, often representing scenes from the lives of laborers and miners. Later, Christian themes were added. Some of these early pyramids, with three to seven tiers, are shown in the German Christmas Museum in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
Pyramid propellers, moved by the rising heat of the burning candles, create a charming play of shadow and light on ceilings and walls, making them fascinating centerpieces during the holiday season.
