Birth of Christ – Durer


Our Lady wraps her newborn son in swaddling clothes and lays Him in the manger in Bethlehem, where the shepherds and angels come to adore Him as King and Savior. The shepherds are depicted as being much smaller than Jesus, Mary, and Joseph because their holiness is not as great.
