#540 Nativity Star

Acquired 2008

This rounded five-point star reveals the Story of Christmas. It is created from the Dickens Corporation and is quite heavy even though it is only 6” by 6”. Joseph and Mary's green and blue robes form the bottom of the star and create the look of a manger. Their bodies form a circle of love holding Baby Jesus, and their faces are subtle with no features. The colors of their robes then blend into the brown tone background of the star. At first glance it seems to be quite simple, but the more you gaze at it the more beauty you see. It will take a large nail - but will be a beautiful piece to add to the wall collection. A gift from my husband for Christmas, 2008.
