  1. A Monastery Nativity


    This marvelous 17th century sculpted relief panel of The Visit of the Magi, in Italian marble by an anonymous artist, is one of the treasures of the St. Bernard de Clairvaux Ancient Spanish Monastery, North Miami Beach.
    It may be January 10, but the only evidence of winter here in South Beach are the Christmas decorations that still festoon the lamp posts. Gold stars and ribbons, and artificial garland—looking even more so in the sunshine—line Ocean Drive, the pulsating center of this ...
