The Nativity

The Nativity as seen in the Bible is a celebration not only of the birth of Jesus but also of family. This beautiful artwork depicts the birth of baby Jesus and has been created by Italian artist Jon Tomassetti.

The central image of the artwork is baby Jesus fast asleep in the manger with his mother, Mary and father, Joseph looking over him. A closer look shows you a miniature depiction of Mary and Joseph on their arduous journey on a donkey to Bethlehem.

In the four corners around the central image the artist has placed a few words from a Hebrew poem that say:

Blessed are You, Adonai,
Ruler of the Universe,
For giving us life,
For sustaining us,
And for enabling us to reach this season

This prayer, known as the Shehecheyanu, is traditionally recited on special occasions, such as the birth of a child.
