#771 Adoration of Baby Jesus

Acquired 2016

This very heavy stand-up one-piece table nativity is a beautiful depiction of the Adoration of the Coming Messiah as the Babe of Bethlehem. The piece is 12” x 12” at the widest points and elegantly tell the nativity story. This would be what I call the “traditional” design. Elegantly painted on the heavy ceramic piece are the three kings, the angel, a simple shepherd holding his lamb, and Mary and Joseph - most of the figures are kneeling before the Baby. He is the center of the piece wrapped only with a swaddling cover in a manger.A gift to me from Janine and her family, Christmas, 2016. She purchased the piece through the internet.
