Catalan mud figures mark Christmas

Updated: 2007-12-05 10:30

Mud figures, of US President George W. Bush (L), France's President Nicolas Sarkozy (C) and Spain's Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, known as "caganer" (defecator in Catalan language) are sold at the Santa Llucia Christmas market in central Barcelona December 4, 2007. Catalans create Christmas Nativity scenes using models and hide the figures in them before inviting friends to find the figures. Catalans believe the "caganer", by creating faeces, fertilises the earth and brings prosperity and luck for the coming year. [Agencies]
