In this reproduction of Gerard David's The Nativity, the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph flank the newborn Lord in the manger, adoring the Christ child with reverent postures whiling looking upon him with tender, parental eyes. And here with the basket of linens, the wheat shock, and the wooden staff in the foreground, the mystery of the Incarnation (i.e. God become man) is inextricably linked to the mystery of the Eucharistic sacrifice. God is born in the city of David- Bethlehem, "The House of Wheat," and He is a mere vulnerable naked baby in feeding trough.
The plaque mounted image makes for a unique gift, treasured for years to come due to its quality UV protection matte finish and washable surface. The wood plaque measures 3/8" thick with beveled and finished edges.
