The Nativity of Christ
The Andrei Sheptitsky Lviv National Museum — The Glory of Ukraine exhibition, Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha, Nebraska
The reclining Mother of God rests on a red cushion, in this "narrative" — many scenes depicted as if occuring at the same time — icon: two handmaidens prepare the Newborn's first bath, the Magi approach with gifts, the angels announce the good news to the shepherds, and Joseph is tempted by the devil. The surreal cave is pierced by the Light emanating from the Heavenly Sphere, above, culminating the Star of Bethlehem.
