Ceramic Styalized

To finish off the Christmas theme I will move to a different variation on the theme. I will now show you a number the the creches that I have collected over the years.

The Artistic depiction of Nativity has been a major subject for Christian artists since the 4th century, both pictorial and sculptural, and the Nativity has inspired a large body of liturgical music, Christmas Carols and folk music. Since the 13th century, the Nativity scene has emphasized the humility of Jesus and promoted a more tender image of him.

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

This is unique! I've never seen such fluidity in rendering the Nativity scene, but here these silhouettes tell more of the story than the traditional setting.
