Nativity Star

Title: Nativity Star

This painting was meant to be simple. It is simple in order to give a clear focus to the magnificence of the Holy God and the vulnerability of Jesus as a tiny baby. In the center are the “U” shape symbols of a woman and man nurturing a newborn baby. This represents Mary and Joseph caring for Jesus. Around them is the glow of the magnificent star of Bethlehem. The Indigenous pattern work used to form the star symbolise land and water. The patterned star represents the unexplainable, enigmatic mystery that the God of glory become like us and walk the land with us.
