Our Nativity of the Lord Icon makes a wonderful Christmas Gift or Religious Decoration for your Home!
In the Nativity of the Lord Greek Icon we see the Virgin Mary and St Joseph the Betrothed before the very cave in Bethlehem where the Living Bread of Heaven, Jesus Christ, was born as a man in the flesh. The star that leads to the Three Holy Kings, as seen to the left of the Virgin, illuminates where the young child was while above the Kings the angels look to wonder. To the right, another angel is instructing a shepherd to come and see this most blessed moment in all of history: God is being born as a human being with all our frailties except sin.
Inside the rocks is the cave where Christ was born, still visible beneath the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem even today. The Lord is laid in a manger in the wall of the cave where animals had been sheltered in times past. They, too, look on with wonder. The Virgin Mary is kneeling in adoration and love at this most special Son in Whose image and Likeness we too were made. St Joseph is kneeling here as well and offering up his praise, while another shepherd sits with his pipe in his hand and his sheep laying down before the Cave. If seen clearly, the center of Time, which looked before this event in anticipation, and which looks afterwards in respect, occurs just at the moment of God's incarnation.
This Nativity Icon makes a wonderful Christmas gift, gift for a Priest, or Catholic Art for the Season of Advent to bless your home.
About Our Icons
We have chosen to carry only the most beautiful and well made Icons. Our Icons are laminated and mounted high quality icon prints gathered from many overseas sources. Some of the Icons are reproduced, on stable warp-resistant birch veneer plywood (Extra Small icons are mounted on 1/4" pressboard because of their small size). The laminate finish is a 5 mil low luster mylar film that seals and protects each icon from dirt and moisture. The icons are edge painted with traditional red borders and sides, and all except the Extra Small have a keyhole on the back for immediate hanging.
Our distributor is a leader in the industry, providing us with outstanding quality Byzantine Icons.
All Icons purchased from us are fully guaranteed with regard to materials and workmanship. Any problems will be repaired or replaced without charge, by simply contacting us for return authorization.
These Icons are even more beautiful in person. The pictures do not do them justice!
