The Christmas pyramid is a unique article that originated in the Erzgebirge region of Germany around 300 years ago. It was very simple - often sticks tied together at the top and decorated with bright materials. To maintain an upright position, the sticks had to be tied in such way that the base was broader than the top; hence, the pyramid shape, and the reason for their name.
Over time, flat, round platforms were developed and a center shaft was put through the platforms; thus, the platforms rotate. Ultimately, wings or blades were attached at the top and candles were fitted to various parts of the pyramid. When the candles are lit on today's Christmas pyramids, their heat moves the wing blades and propels the whole structure.

Comments about Richard Glaesser Color Arch Wisemen and Angel Nativity Pyramid:
This is an exceptionally nice piece - much better in person than the photo depictions. Shipment arrived promptly. Took off one star beacuse one of the small shaved trees was missshapen and two of the trees were loose in the box. Easily reglued. Otherwise, no complaints.
