Nativity - the Birth of Christ
This rendering of THE NATIVITY is both still and animated, as well as richly decorative. Mary holds the Christchild in a warm embrace, her gently bent head close to his; the folds of her gown swing out in rich folds, giving her figure a special grace. In contrast to her animated form, are three horseheads and the strirated manger roofs, all held in rigid geometric pattern. The Three Kings are wonderfully described, each distinguished from the next be means of stance, glance and clothing. Above, three Shepherds peering out and framed by decorative trees, complete this beautifully conceived and intimate scene.
