Joyeux Noël

image: lemondedesreligions

For the first time in France, the Musée de Cluny (Museum of the Middle Ages) is exhibiting some of the most precious treasures of Gothic art collection from the National Gallery of Slovakia in Bratislava. This haut-relief sculpture was inspired by a vision of Christ's birth by St. Brigitte of Sweden, which places the sacred event amidst a fresh outdoor scene of winding roads, grazing sheep, and country folk.
More pictures from the exhibit here.

A very merry Christmas to you all!


  1. Thank you for sharing those treasures. I'll look forward to more of your posts in the new year. Have a very special Season!

  2. It's a beautiful piece! The Madonna looks so much like Meryl Streep - or is it just me.

    Have a wonderful Christmas!
