3 Christmas Artworks

It's the week before Christmas, so I'm going to do a countdown beginning today from 7 to 1, with 1 being on Christmas Day. Each day will have a different topic.

Today I'm sharing with you 3 Christmas Artworks.

Below are three different depictions of the nativity scene. None of them are what could rightly be described as "accurrate" insofar as showing what the setting and the people probably looked like, but that doesn't bother me at all.  In fact, what I like about these is that the artists show people to whom their audience could relate and surrounding a Savior to whom they can also relate.  It's a reminder that Jesus came to be the Savior for people of all colors and from all nations and cultures.


Here's a painting from Cameroon
