“Birth of Jesus – Welcoming Hands ” 

Christmas is the season of welcoming the birth of Jesus Christ to the world.  As the progenitor of the Christian faith he brought and brings tolerance, compassion, and respect for life to the world.

 Artistic portrayal of the event shows welcoming hands of the future Christian world .  Darkness for many was illuminated by the event. In this art piece, the bright moon (almost as bright as any sun) lights up the black of the night.  The star of Bethlehem has a mysterious and unique blue hue directing the 3 kings or wise men to the event.

Black and white are used liberally in this work.  As opposites in many ways they compliment each other and need each other to reflect the contrasts of moods.

Festivals of light including Chanukah and Christmas use the powers of light to offset the gloom of the dark.



The central component of “Birth of Jesus – Welcoming Hands” depicting Jesus and Mary was adapted from the public domain work of  Gerard van Honthorst  (1592-1656) entitled “Adoration of the Shepherds”.
