A Hungarian Roma artisan says a dream motivated him to build a black walnut crib for Prince George.

Arpad Rostas, who has done wood restoration work at the Versailles Palace in France and at the Vatican, said he had a dream in which Jesus and the Virgin Mary appeared with a crib, inspiring him to build one.

The crib was blessed during a ceremony today at St. Anne's Church in Budapest. It is decorated with the badge of the House of Windsor and the coat of arms of Hungary.

Members of the Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, a chivalric organisation, plan to present the crib to the royal family in October.
