#551 Bee Frame Nativity

Acquired 2009

While Janine was in Slovenia for a short-term mission's trip, she found this unique wall nativity plaque. It isn't just another painted nativity scene but is painted on a bee box honey frame. She tells me bees are a major agricultural income for Slovenia and anything and everything is made with a “bee” influence. However, because Slovenia is an agnostic nation and has minimal spiritual regard for our God, to have this frame painted with the nativity scene was almost unheard of! Our missionary friend, Todd Honeycutt, said it is almost impossible to find anything alluding to the Bible and God. He was quite surprised that she found this item - which made it a significant piece to add to my collection. She brought this home to me July 2009.
