#772 King's Crown

Acquired 2016

Designed as an Advent calendar, this piece is a stunning crown fitted for our King Jesus who came to us as the Babe of Bethlehem. The ceramic crown is 8' in diameter and about 5' tall at the points of the crown. It is called “The Birth of the King” and tells the nativity story all around the base of the crown. Included is the Holy Family, the three kings bearing their gifts along with their three camels, the horizon of Bethlehem, a few sheep, the angel bellowing the good news from a trumpet, and a humble shepherd. Within the crown are holders for the four advent candles and a large candle to represent Jesus' birth.
