This is not your normal nativity, but a rather unique nativity under glass. In its muted silver tones, it would be so pretty in a more formal living room setting. The holy family gathers together on a base under the glass dome. Standing in front of the manger, Joseph looks lovingly at Mary as she holds the baby Jesus. Sitting atop the dome is the Star of Bethlehem or Christmas Star, a beacon alerting the magi of Christ's birth.
