BACOLOD CITY – Bamboo Tonogbanua’s miniature Christmas Village features well-loved Disney fairy tale characters.

A Disney fan himself, the Bacoleño artist and professor made sure to add scenes from "Beauty and the Beast" and "Frozen" to his growing collection. 

“What I enjoy most is seeing the eyes of the children sparkle when they see my Christmas village,” said Tonogbanua.

The scene from "Beauty and the Beast" also shows the wilting rose and the broken mirror, both iconic in the story. 

There is also a reunion scene of famous fairy tale princesses like Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Arielle, Rapunzel, Snow White and Pocahontas. Behind them is the Nutcracker house.
 
The village also shows the Manor House, children playing in the snow, a farmers’ market and families gathering on Christmas Eve.

Meanwhile, one of his priced collections is the set of houses that depict American artist Norman Rockwell’s home, studio and barn. 

Chinatown is also one of the latest additions to his collection. Red Chinese lanterns, a dragon, an antique store and a pagoda restaurant make the scene more interesting. 

Tonogbanua started collecting miniature Christmas pieces in 1985. The following year, the artist decided to place his collections on a ping-pong table, which became his very first miniature Christmas village.
