The Nativity

Peter Szmanda

Le Rolle, a French artist, painted this picture which he named, "The Nativity". In this picture we can see the Holy Family sitting on the hay in the stable while the shepherds are looking in amazement. The donkey on which Mary and Joseph rode to Bethlehem is shown standing silently in the foreground. The background of the picture is lighted by the halo of the Mother and Child. How peaceful everything looks!
