Our hand-painted, cast marble Vatican Nativity Plaque is made from a mold of a tenth- or eleventh-century original. In this Nativity scene the Infant Jesus is shown twice: once in the foreground being bathed, and then again swaddled in the crib by the side of the reclining Mary. The star shines above his head, and the ox and the ass in the manger peer into the crib. At the far left, two shepherds stand amidst their flock, one pointing at the star while the other, holding his shepherd’s crook, stares in awe. Above the crib are three angels. At the lower left Joseph, with his back turned upon the scene, sits in wonderment.
Cast marble. 5'' x 6 1/4''.
